An investigation by Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in relation tax fraud can be extremely damaging, with HMRC's extensive investigatory powers enabling the carrying out of both civil and criminal investigations when there are suspicions that tax has been evaded, left unpaid or undeclared.
Conviction may lead the court to issue substantial fines or hand down custodial sentences. If you find yourself in this position, the Criminal Defence Solicitors at Wilford Smith have years of experience in conducting tax fraud cases, and have the required skills, knowledge and determination to ruthlessly develop a top-level strategy to ensure the best outcome for you in your case.
Direct taxes are those levied on income, wealth and profit. Examples of direct taxes include income tax and corporation tax. Indirect taxes are taxes on spending, the most common example being Value Added Tax (VAT), which is paid on goods and services. HMRC aims to ensure the highest possible levels of compliance with the UK's laws and tax regulations, carrying out criminal investigations into tax fraud with a view to prosecutions. Wilford Smith's Fraud Solicitors have a strong track record when it comes to defending clients against tax fraud allegations, taking a meticulous approach to case preparation to ensure the best outcome in any case.
