Tax Evasion Fraud

It is an offence to be knowingly concerned in carrying, removing, depositing, harbouring, keeping or concealing or in any manner dealing with any such goods with intent to defraud HMRC of duty payable. This is the offence usually used for evasion of duty offences including tobacco, alcohol, red diesel excise duty etc.

The defence is to show lack of knowledge and lack of intent to defraud HMRC. HMRC investigators and HMRC prosecutors are tasked to enforce the laws that restrict duty being evaded of every type.

HMRC investigators and HMRC prosecutors have resources to investigate and prosecute cases where there has been a conspiracy to defraud involving one or more people or single acts of evasion of duty.

Specialist legal advice is required to defend tax evasion cases and to prepare defences to expert forensic witnesses for HMRC prosecutors.

In the Magistrates Court maximum sentence is 12 months imprisonment and the Crown Court maximum sentence is 7 years and or a fine.
