Income Tax Fraud Defence
If your company has been accused of committing income tax fraud or tax evasion, JMW can help you build a credible, successful defence. Our income tax fraud defence solicitors have vast experience in this area and we have defended firms of all sizes and in all sectors against such potentially damaging allegations.
Allegations of income tax fraud are serious and require the knowledge and experience of a specialist team. When dealing with income tax fraud allegations, we will put together a team of experts with the required expertise; the team representing you may include solicitors as well as other experts, such as:
- Computer forensic experts
- Electronic evidence experts
Income tax fraud is investigated by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), which has a specialist office tasked with investigating evasion worth between £75,000 and £500,000. For cases involving alleged evasion of more than £500,000, there is a Specialist Investigation Office. Our solicitors have experience in dealing with HMRC requests for disclosure, and we have a comprehensive understanding of the limits to the powers of HMRC and can protect you from disclosing information that you are not obliged to.
We can advise on the legality of the methods undertaken by HMRC to obtain information and explain the protections and challenges that are available to you. We will use our knowledge and experience to make sure any disputes are conducted in the fairest, cheapest and least stressful way for you, enabling you to progress with the important matter of running your business.
