    Client Retains His Liberty | Kangs Tax Fraud Solicitors

    Kangs Solicitors client appeared before Warwick Crown Court charged with ten counts of fraudulent evasion of Income Tax by submitting incorrect self- assessment tax returns for the tax years 2008-2016.

    The Circumstances | Kangs Tax Fraud team

    In addition to submitting incorrect self-assessment returns, our client also failed to declare income received for a short period from his company.

    Submission of the fraudulent tax returns also resulted in our client receiving repayments from HMRC of a sum which would normally result in the court passing an immediate custodial sentence.

    The evidence against our client was overwhelming, he co-operated with the authorities from the outset and entered a plea of guilty.

    How Were We Able To Help? | Defending VAT & Income Tax Cases  

    By way of preparation of our client’s mitigation to the court explaining his conduct we were heavily involved in:

    • Discussing in detail the events and taking our client’s full and thorough instructions.
    • Obtaining supportive reference letters/statements from our client’s friends, associates and employers for the consideration of the Court.
    • Choosing and instructing a forensic accountant to provide an informative report to assist in the preparation of our client’s case.
    • Obtaining medical evidence which assisted understanding of our client’s problems
    • Identifying suitable Counsel to present our client’s mitigation to the court and instructing him in detail.

    The Sentencing Hearing | Defending HMRC Tax Cases

    As the result of the thorough preparation outlined above, our client received a sixteen months prison sentence which was suspended for two years, despite the anticipation that an immediate custodial sentence was a real threat.

    The court also imposed on our client requirements for unpaid work, supervision and for a short period of time, a curfew.

    Naturally, our client was delighted to walk from the court with his liberty intact.
