Are you or your business being investigated for VAT fraud? This can cover a variety of allegations against businesses or individuals, including Missing Trader Fraud (MTIC), Carousel fraud and Diversion fraud. Our company has extensive experience in handling cases of fraud involving dutiable goods as well as prohibited products. Those finding themselves the subject of a VAT fraud investigation can include transportation companies and their employees as well as companies caught up in a chain of unpaid VAT liability.
Prosecutions for VAT fraud are normally brought by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), who have wide powers to search and seize documents and other information. Successful convictions can result in long prison sentences and confiscation of assets under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 so it’s vital to get the best legal advice as soon as possible if you’re facing investigation.
Our team can help you to identify and preserve documents and other evidence that may be critical to your defence, as well as advise you on the best tactics for handling these lengthy and complex enquiries.
Seeking advice at an early stage can also dramatically reduce your risk of prosecution so contact our team 24/7 for expert and confidential advice.
