False Accounting Solicitors Sheffield

The Criminal Defence Solicitors at Wilford Smith Solicitors can provide you with clear, straight-forward, practical advice if you find yourself subject to allegations of false accounting, offering you complete support to help you protect your position.

Our team of Fraud Experts have a thorough understanding of the corporate and financial sectors, with a strong track record for providing high-quality representation tailored to your needs and with advice delivered in a manner that is clear, concise and easy to understand. Wilford Smith Solicitors's solicitors offer legal support from the earliest stage of any investigation, allowing you to put forward the most robust defence should any criminal charges be forthcoming.

False accounting is defined in section 17 of the Theft Act 1968 as an offence whereby an individual intentionally falsifies, alters or submits false, inaccurate or deceptive records for accounting purposes. This may be done to make the financial position of a business seem stronger than it is, or may be part of a broader pattern of fraud, such as tax or VAT fraud or a fraudulent application for a business loan or grant. For those found guilty of intentionally making accounting misstatements, the consequences can be very serious. It is within the powers of the court to hand down a custodial sentence, while the damage to the reputations of the business and individuals involved can be significant.
