Corporate Criminal Tax Investigations Ongoing Despite Pandemic
Updated: Sep 9, 2020
HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has 10 live corporate criminal offence (CCO) investigations and a further 22 live opportunities are currently under review according to new statistics published in August.
The investigations span 10 different business sectors, including financial services, oil, construction, labour provision and software development. Specifically, 12 investigations or opportunities relate to businesses in the financial sector, according to the press release published following a freedom of information request.
"HMRC has sustained its focus on the CCOs despite the huge impact that administering and enforcing the furlough scheme has had on its business operations," said Wahaj Yasin, a tax expert at Bower & Leaf.
