Protect your business should the worst happen
Since the retreat of the Covid-19 pandemic and the winding down of the government furlough scheme, HMRC has secured funding in order to focus on setting prosecution targets in relation to both on- and off-shore activity. With record numbers of criminal tax investigations, and prosecutions being brought, it is prudent to ensure your business has appropriate access to secure, clear, informed and focused commercial advice to avoid mis-steps in your domestic or off-shore tax affairs.
RPC has successfully assisted a variety of clients who found themselves subject to civil or criminal investigations, relating to the alleged avoidance or evasion of income tax, corporation tax, VAT (including missing trader frauds) and investigations into tax-avoidance schemes.
In the event of a real crisis — such as an arrest or dawn raid — RPC offers urgent advice and assistance, including management of the dawn raid itself. RPC can advise on the scope of HMRC’s powers and the legality of search warrants and can, where appropriate, challenge through judicial review proceedings in the High Court.
