What Should You Do?
When you receive an HMRC criminal investigation letter, we recommend getting immediate legal advice. You only have 60 days to decide what to do. This is a major decision and is one you should not take lightly. Instead, speak to our solicitors and discuss whether it would be better to accept or reject HMRC’s offer.
If you wish to reject the offer, we can support you throughout the forthcoming investigation and prosecution.
We know this is a frightening time for you. To help you understand more about your situation, we have put together some frequently asked questions that can be downloaded.
