HMRC criminal investigations
Where HMRC feels there has been serious misconduct and dishonesty, it will choose to launch a criminal investigation, as opposed to a civil investigation. This means your case could go to court, where a range of penalties are available.
If you are currently under investigation, you need a legal expert by your side. At Aticus Law, we are recognised as a market leader in the preparation and conduct of these kinds of cases. Our specialised team has an unrivalled track record in defending HMRC prosecutions. We use the latest technology to help us, operating a state-of-the art dedicated computer system and forensic technology to advance your case.

When to contact us
Often, you won’t know you’re under investigation until you are taken for a police interview, or the police conduct a search of your premises. If they have a warrant, then this is allowed. The police can even seize your personal items, such as your phone, laptop and paperwork.
You need to contact our defence solicitors as soon as you realise you are under investigation. We will act immediately, representing you during interviews and court hearings. We will determine the best strategy in your particular case, delivering clear, practical legal advice.
