Abbey Tax announces lucrative new partnership

    Abbey Tax, one of the UK’s leading fee protection insurance providers and the largest tax consultancy partner to accountants, is delighted to announce a new affinity partnership with The CharterGroup Accountancy Alliance, a national alliance of independent firms of chartered accountants, based in Worcester.

    Impressed by Abbey Tax’s comprehensive and flexible level of fee protection cover combined with extensive service provision, the 54 members strong CharterGroup was especially drawn by the company’s innovative and technological proficiencies.

    Recently shortlisted in this year’s competitive Online Technology Provider of the Year category of the FStech Awards, Abbey Tax’s online portal is an all-encompassing tool designed to help its accountancy practice clients administer and market their insurance schemes.

    Incorporating an online claims management system, client database, e-marketing facility, webinar function and more, this is what particularly differentiated Abbey Tax from the competition, according to CharterGroup.

    Gary Corbett, CEO at the company, said: “CharterGroup’s ethos is to inspire, support and enable with a range of services and products to help our members develop and achieve growth. Abbey Tax became our first choice for the provision of fee protection insurance not least because it shares similar values and is keen to encourage and facilitate success amongst its clients.

    “Equally, Abbey Tax refuses to stand still and is always looking for ways to help accountancy practices secure new business and maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of its administrative and marketing processes.”

    Christopher Penfold, sales director at Abbey Tax, said: “We are naturally delighted that CharterGroup has chosen Abbey Tax as their exclusive provider of fee protection to its UK-wide membership. It is equally satisfying that the organisation has formally recognised, through our new partnership, Abbey Tax’s successful online solution for client business development which is a major part of our business strategy.”
