Tax Avoidance Schemes Cop 8

Tax Avoidance - COP 8 Procedures

Have you entered into a tax avoidance scheme?

Tax avoidance can be defined as the legal restructuring of your tax affairs to reduce your tax liability. However, when HMRC comes across a tax avoidance scheme, they strive to close it down and reclaim any lost tax.

Code of Practice 8 tax investigations are opened to investigate serious tax avoidance schemes were sums in excess of £500,000 are involved. Although, at the outset of the investigation there is no allegation of tax fraud, things have a habit of spiraling out of control, and you could find yourself embroiled in a tax evasion investigation which can result in a criminal prosecution.

Call our tax investigation experts NOW if you have received a HMRC COP 8 investigation letter.

COP8 investigations do not follow the standardised formality of Civil Investigation of Fraud investigations undertaken under COP9. You will need our tax investigation advisor who has a specialist knowledge of HMRC powers and is used to dealing with intrusive, awkward, questions from experienced, bullying, tax inspectors who will not take no for an answer.
