What is Tax Liability Insurance?

Tax liability insurance is a specialist casualty insurance line that covers the loss from unexpected future tax charges as a result of tax positions or tax treatments being successfully challenged or disallowed by the relevant tax authority.

Tax liability insurance is designed to mitigate the uncertainty relating to the outcome of tax issues by reimbursing financial losses incurred as a result of a successful challenge by a tax authority.

Tax liability insurance is a powerful financial tool that can be used to manage business risks, achieve desired accounting treatments or unlock value for shareholders and financial sponsors.
