HM Revenue and Customs ('HMRC')

HMRC can commence criminal and civil investigations against UK tax payers. Bivonas Law can advise in relation to both types of investigation and work in conjunction with accountants to seek to head off a prosecution or mitigate interest and penalties.

We have dealt with both criminal prosecutions and cases proceeding in the First-tier Tribunal (Tax) and the Upper Tribunals.

We have dealt with:

  • Investigations and interviews
  • VAT assessments and appeals
  • Carousel fraud and MTIC (missing trader intra-community) fraud
  • Raids, seizure and investigations
  • Judicial reviews including claims for the urgent release of goods and damages for unlawful detentions and injunctions
  • Disclosure and legal privilege issues
  • Money laundering issues
  • Abuse of powers issues
  • Irregularities and place of supply issues
  • Winding up petitions
  • Applications for provisional liquidators and freezing injunctions for alleged tax debts
