Kangs has considerable experience in advising corporate clients, directors, employees and individuals in relation to tax investigations and prosecutions, including those conducted by His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC). We represent clients throughout the country in relation to HMRC tax investigations and prosecutions from our offices in London, Birmingham and Manchester.

Kangs is ranked in Band 1 nationally by the legal directory, Chambers UK, for its work in financial crime and fraud investigations.

We advise and defend companies, directors, senior executives and those in regulated professions, in allegations of tax fraud.

We are nationally recognised for our MTIC, Kittel and VAT fraud cases, and have been involved in many of the leading cases in recent years. 

We also provide advice to businesses and individuals into breaches of money laundering regulations and offences related to the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.
