Fraud & Financial Crime
Tax evasion happens when an individual (or a company) fails to declare their income or falsifies their expenses with the purpose of deliberately avoiding their tax liability. It falls under the banner of fraud and financial crimes.
Tax evasion offences are extremely serious and will have huge repercussions on your business and personal life too. The consequences of tax evasion as usually a prison term to serve and the very real chance that you will face Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) proceedings which will lead to confiscation orders of your property, belongings and other assets too.
There are a number of different forms of tax evasion. They are:
- Income tax fraud
- MTIC (Missing Trader) fraud
- Diversion Fraud (inward and outward)
Whatever tax evasion charges you are facing, you need an experienced Fraud Defence team working for you, so call us now to see how we can help minimise the damage to you and your business.
