HMRC Criminal Tax Investigations

Criminal Tax Investigations

Have you received a Criminal tax Investigation letter from HMRC?

If HMRC decide to go ahead with a criminal tax investigation, they have the evidence and they intend to send you to prison. The process begins with a seemingly innocuous letter inviting you to attend a completely voluntary interview under caution. You will be interviewed under PACE (Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984). You will be face to face with a experienced senior tax inspector, asking a set of difficult questions in a very intrusive and pushy manner.

The CPS is to increase the HMRC tax evasion prosecutions to 2000 a year by 2015. It has a conviction rate of about 86%.  Criminal sanctions prosecution is likely were the  individual holds a position of trust or responsibility; where materially false statements are made or materially false documents are provided in the course of a civil investigation; or where deliberate concealment, deception, conspiracy or corruption is suspected.

The driving behind the criminal tax investigation is to send out a deterrent message to other would be tax evaders - they will want to make an example of you.

If you find yourself in this situation, you need our expert tax investigation specialist on your side.

We can work closely with you and your solicitors, accountants and other professionals to prevent a criminal prosecution and negotiating with HMRC to lower any penalties and interest charges that are due.

One way to avoid criminal prosecution is to make us of the Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF )used in conjunction with COP 9 procedures. In brief, this requires you to make a full and frank disclosure of all tax evasion activities and to pay the tax, interest and penalties due.
