Legal representation for tax investigations and other fraud crimes with our fraud solicitor
17 Apr 2023

Fraud is an act of intentional deception designed to exploit a victim for monetary gain. Fraudulent activity can be carried out by an individual, group of people, business or organisation. There is a range of different fraud crimes, such as identity theft, money laundering, bribery, business and investment fraud, accounting fraud, tax evasion and hundreds of other types of financial crime. The advances in digital technology have also seen a huge increase in cyber-related fraud and forgery cases. The CPS prosecutes thousands of fraud cases every year.

No two cases are the same, and over the years here at ABV Solicitors, we have gained extensive experience by being instructed to deal with some of the most serious and complicated fraud cases in the UK. Fraud investigations can often last several months or even years. They include large amounts of complicated paperwork, documentation and evidence. If you are involved in a fraud crime or investigation, then you need to speak to our fraud solicitor. Our role is to understand the nature of the allegation and all its details, apply our knowledge and experience using correct legal principles and put together the best defence for you.

Fraud cases can be complex, and we will instruct experts such as forensic accountants, leading barristers and the King’s counsel, with whom we will work closely to achieve the best possible outcome for you. We represent clients from across the UK and internationally where necessary. We have defended some of the most high-profile financial cases in the UK and have been recognised as one of the top defence solicitors in the country by The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

Tax investigations

Here at ABV Solicitors, we deal with a wide range of HMRC tax investigations. A tax investigation can have a serious negative impact on you and your business; therefore, if you are contacted by HMRC, you must speak to us at ABV Solicitors immediately so that we can delegate a fraud solicitor to your case. You may be subject to search and seizure as well as dawn raids since HMRC carry out record numbers of tax investigations. Tax law is complicated; therefore, you must have our assistance from the very beginning. You may be investigated for tax avoidance or tax evasion. Tax avoidance involves bending the rules for financial benefit whilst remaining within the law, whereas tax evasion involves deliberately misrepresenting or hiding information to avoid paying tax or reducing the amount of tax payable.

Depending on the specifics of your case, tax evasion penalties in the UK can be as severe as 7 years imprisonment as well as a potentially unlimited fine and an order to repay the taxes that have been avoided. Cheating public revenue can result in life imprisonment. If you would like to learn more about tax investigations and other types of fraud, or if you are looking for our representation, speak to our fraud solicitor at ABV Solicitors immediately. We provide 24-hour telephone service, and you can discuss your issues with us in confidence.
