The Criminal Finances Act 2017 comes into force on 30 September 2017 and the Tax and Fraud Defence team at Cartwright King are able to “health check” your business to ensure that you are not held criminally liable for the actions of individuals within your business. Failure to do so can leave your business exposed to an unlimited fine. The bill received widespread public support and is likely to have significant resources allocated to prosecute those that do not have reasonable prevention procedures in place.
If either you or your business has been accused of committing fraud, our Tax and Fraud Defence team are available to assist you. To speak to one of our solicitors, please contact us on 0808 168 5550 or email email@example.com.
