Fraud

Businesses may sometimes be unwittingly caught up in practices which can, from the outset, be seen as fraud. If a surveyor provides a valuation on a property which is deemed to be overvalued, or a company trades fraudulently immediately before a bankruptcy can all constitute as a business being involved in fraud. If VAT is allegedly not paid or charged on services without payment to the HMRC, then allegations of fraud can arise. The list is non-exhaustive but there may be a defence available to you depending on the circumstances of your case.  We can assist you in respect of such allegations, and are happy to accompany you to the police station or Companies House if you are invited in for an interview or arrested.
