An ever-increasing burden on businesses to ensure complete compliance with tax regimes means that clients can get caught up in complex matters and require specialist advice. We advise professional clients and businesses in relation to investigations by HMRC concerning allegations of fraud, evasion, non-compliance and other related infringements.
Our aim is to achieve a civil settlement where appropriate and in this area we have successfully defended many clients unfairly accused of financial irregularity.
Deeply established in the field, we draw upon the skills of expert forensic accountants to support clients together with our own experience of conducting robust defence strategies.
COP9, also known as a Contractual Disclosure Facility, is issued by HMRC’s elite Fraud Investigations Service when it suspects deliberate tax fraud has taken place. We are able to advise how best to approach the procedure involved in the enquiry and negotiate with investigators to achieve the best possible results.
