Criminal lawyers at Taylor Law can assist if you’ve been arrested, the Police want to talk to you or you’re due in Court.
Why Taylor Law?
Investigations on suspicion of tax evasion can be complex and disruptive. It can also be damaging to your reputation and that of any business that you are involved in.
You are advised to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible if you are notified of an investigation to ensure that your position is protected as far as possible and that matters are resolved without delay.
Expert advice and representation
Tax law is extremely complicated and mistakes can easily be made in dealing with tax affairs. HM Revenue & Customs are increasingly working to penalise those whose affairs have been dealt with incorrectly and to recover funds from individuals and businesses.
At Taylor Law we are experts in tax affairs and the complex schemes that can be legally set up to manage tax. We can represent you from the start to provide responses to enquiries, attend meetings and put together a strong defence on your behalf.
Deliberate understatement of tax
Tax evasion is the deliberate failure to pay taxes, commonly by making a false report.
Deliberately understating the amount of tax you should be paying by not declaring or hiding income or misleading HM Revenue & Customs is taken very seriously and can result in penalties of up to 200 per cent of the tax due. A maximum prison term of seven years or an unlimited fine can be ordered
in the most severe cases. Investigations can go back as far as 20 years if there is evidence of serious tax evasion.
Dealing with a tax investigation
If you are being subjected to a tax investigation, we will assess your case and provide honest, practical advice.
We will work proactively to have any investigation against you dropped as quickly as possible to minimise disruption.
If this does not prove possible, we will correspond with HM Revenue & Customs to ascertain the extent of their case and advise you in respect of any possible negotiations with regard to payment of penalties.
In the event that your case proceeds to trial, you can be sure of robust representation. We have contacts with tax experts across adjacent sectors, including tax accountants and barristers whom we can instruct if necessary.
Tax evasion is a serious offence. As well as imprisonment, HM Revenue & Customs may seek to impose substantial penalties amounting to many thousands of pounds. Putting legal representation in place as soon as possible is important to protect your rights.
