Civil Investigations of Fraud and Disclosure

If you have received a letter from HMRC stating that you have been issued with a Code of Practice 9, this means that HMRC have grounds to suspect that there is something irregular in your tax affairs. You will be subject to a full HMRC investigation, and face a civil penalty if fraudulent conduct is discovered.

I’ve received a COP9 letter from HMRC – What should I do?

If you’ve received a COP9 letter from HMRC, even if you haven’t done anything wrong, we strongly advise you to obtain legal advice from a professional. There may be an innocent explanation for why HMRC are suspicious of you, and we’re here to assist you every step of the way.

Remember: HMRC have the power to investigate you with or without your voluntary permission and cooperation.
