In its role as principal prosecuting authority for alleged tax evasion, HMRC is more proactive than ever in pursuing those who do not pay their appropriate share of tax.
The agency has been receiving increased funding to support it in this, as successive UK governments have attempted to reduce the deficit by recovering money from those who attempt to cheat the revenue. The Criminal Defence Solicitors at Wilford Smith have extensive experience in successfully defending clients in tax cases, and have the required skills, knowledge and determination to ruthlessly develop a top-level strategy on your behalf.
Tax avoidance is the legitimate means used to minimise an individual or company's tax liabilities. While these methods are legal, they may in some cases be seen to be outside the spirit of the law. Tax evasion is the illegal practice of not paying tax that is owed, often by failing to declare income, by reporting expenses that are not legally allowed or by simply not paying tax. HMRC carries out criminal investigations into tax evasion with a view to prosecutions being carried out. In the majority of cases, prosecutions for tax evasion result in a successful conviction. If you are under investigation for tax fraud you will require a legal team with a meticulous approach to developing your defence, a service that the Fraud Solicitors at Wilford Smith have a proven track record of providing.
