vat fraud

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) takes VAT fraud investigations very seriously, and proceedings are usually lengthy and far reaching, with companies as well as individuals being scrutinised. If you’re found guilty, conviction includes imprisonment and confiscation under the Proceeds of Crime Act, making it vital to get expert legal representation in these cases.
