Tax evasion corporate criminal offence guidance updated

3 October 2017

David Sleight, a criminal litigation partner at law firm Kingsley Napley, comments in a CCH Daily Article which focuses on how The Criminal Finances Act 2017 introduced the new corporate offence of failure to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion.

The new corporate offence is somewhat of a gift to HMRC and they will be very keen to demonstrate that the “failure to prevent” legislation has teeth.  With the new offence in force from 30 September, companies should be urgently considering the guidelines and critically assessing the adequacy of their existing systems and controls now."
