Cop9 CDF Tax Fraud Disclosures

People who HMRC know have committed tax fraud are initially investigated to identify those which they definitely want to take forward for criminal prosecution. Those who are not suitable for prosecution are offered the chance of A Contractual Disclosure Facility or CDF, under Code of Pracitce 9 proceedings.

COP9 fraud investigations are launched when the taxman expects to collect betweeen £75,000 and £500.000 of un paid tax, penalties and interest. from you. Make no mistake, the tax man will use every trick in the book to recover the maximum amount possible. Be warned that HMRC will not undertake a Code of Practice 9 tax investigation unless they have definite evidence that serious tax fraud has been committed.

Unlike a court of law, if the taxman can come up with an arbitary assessment and say or example, that you owe £300,00. It's then up to you to prove that you do not - guilty until proven innocent.

As soon as that brown envelope drops through the door, it is imperative that you contact us ASAP. The earlier in the process that our tax investigation advisor becomes invovled, the more money we can save you.

HMRC letter will offer you the chance to take part in the CDF, giviing you 60 days to reply. There are two options. You can admit the fraud and come clean, or you can deny the fraud, or not reply to the letter.

Admitting the Tax Fraud

If you admit the fraud and cooperate fully with the investigsation, HMRC will give you immunity against prosecution and the penalties will be reduced.

Initially, you will then be asked to fill in an Outline Disclosure Form giving brief details of the fraud committed, the approximate amounts involved and what records exist.

You will then need our specialist tax fraud invetigation expert to prepare certified documents detailing the fraund and the amount owed. You will also have to disclose details of all bank accounts and credit cards held.

If HMRC uncover further evidence of fraud that you have not admitted to in the CDF, they may decide to go ahead with a criminal prosecution.

The investigation will be finalised with civil settlement with tax arrears (for up to 20 years if offshore accounts are involved), interest payments and penalties.

Through robust negotiation and reasoned agument, we can save our clients up to 40% of what HMRC could have demanded. We are therefore worth every penny of our very affordable fees.

Denying the Tax Fraud

Denying the fraud will not make the investigation go away. HMRC will lauch an investigation without your help. They will send you demands for information, contact your bank, contact your customers and suppliers. They will make your life hell and then assess for £1000's.

You also leave yourself open to criminal prosecution. Property, assets and money can then be seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act and Money Laundering Act.
