What is tax evasion?

Simply put, tax evasion is the act of illegally avoiding taxes by misrepresenting your finances to the HM Revenue Customs (HMRC). This crime can be carried out by an individual or a business in a number of ways:

  • Under-reporting income
  • Inflating deductions
  • Hiding assets
  • Illegally using offshore accounts

If the HMRC has a slight suspicion you are guilty of tax evasion, or they receive a tip-off, an investigation will be launched into you or your business.

What are the penalties for tax evasion?

If you are found guilty of tax evasion, your penalty will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • How much money you fraudulently took
  • The scale of your crime
  • The number of people involved in the crime

Penalties for tax evasion range from heavy fines to prison sentences. Because of the seriousness of these consequences, we recommend you contact a legal advisor as soon as possible.

As well as legal repercussions, the government also holds the right to name and shame those who have been found guilty of tax evasion. This could prove detrimental to your personal character and the reputation of your business.
