VAT Repayment Fraud
DPP Business & Tax Solicitors have a specialist team of tax solicitors who are experts in this field. With decades of experience in handling VAT repayment fraud cases, we offer honest, professional advice to people accused of, or charged with, this type of offence.
You may be in the early stages of a HMRC investigation, or you may have been charged and have a court date set. It doesn’t matter what stage your VAT repayment fraud case is at, we can help.
Although we can assist you at any time, the earlier you obtain legal advice and representation, the better. Contacting us at the earliest possible stage will allow us more time to research your case and put together your defence.
VAT repayment fraud and HMRC
HMRC take a tough stance on those they suspect of VAT fraud, even if you have committed the crime inadvertently. You may have accidentally put the wrong information on your tax documents, or you may have even faked invoices and bank statements to gain a higher VAT repayment from HMRC.
Whatever your reason for being accused or convicted of VAT repayment fraud, it’s vital that you seek legal advice from an experienced tax solicitor as soon as possible, even if you believe you are innocent.
Even though prison sentences for VAT-related crimes are usually reserved for exceptionally serious cases, or for repeat offenders, it’s not unheard of for the HMRC to push for imprisonment, so having someone on your side who knows tax legislation is essential.
Contact a member of our friendly team for more information about how we can assist you with your VAT repayment fraud case.
When it comes to tax services, our solicitors have a reassuring amount of experience. We’ve been defending fraud cases for more than twenty years.
Additional resources are now being directed by HMRC to identify and tackle tax avoidance, tax evasion and organised criminal attacks on the system.
