Tax Investigation

Challenge

This was a tax evasion case that the Defendant pleaded guilty to but contested that the income and tax due per HM Revenue & Customs was significantly overstated. Therefore, for sentencing purposes we were asked to review the Prosecution’s taxable profits and tax due calculations.

Results

We were able to demonstrate that both the income was overstated and expenses understated resulting in reduced taxable profits, that enabled the sentencing amount to be reduced to below £100,000, resulting in a suspended sentence.
