Severity of Matter

Suppose you have any problems with Tax Investigations. In that case, Code of Practice 9 (COP 9), HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) civil or criminal prosecutions and you also need forensic accounts or expert opinion in tribunal or court, or you may need representations in tax tribunals, then Zero One Consultants may have a solution for you.

Why Zero One Consultants

Suppose you receive a Code of Practice 9 (COP 9) letter from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) if you have any doubt that you have made a genuine mistake in your tax affairs or if you think that there is something you need to disclose to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) which was omitted in the first place. You have been subject to malpractice of your accountant/s or any other reason which may cause an investigation from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), either civil or criminal; Zero One Consultants advises you not to ignore the matter, instead take the matter with immediate attention. Zero One Consultants strongly recommends you see an expert like Zero One Consultants for your forensic accounts needs or expert opinion on the matter as soon as possible. This is more important if you are the recipient (taxpayer/suspect) of the Code of Practice 9 (COP 9) letter, then you may have only a limited number of days to react. Every day is counted, and 60 days period may not be extended. If you do not reply, then HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) will automatically consider this act as a refusal to accept the Code of Practice 9 (COP 9) offer. Recipient (taxpayer/suspect) of the Code of Practice 9 (COP 9) letter should consider the implications or affect what may happen is based on what they decide to do once they receive the Code of Practice 9 (COP9) letter.

Recipient (taxpayer/suspect) of the Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF) have the option to:

  1. Accept the offer to the Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF) route
  2. Reject the offer

Recipient (taxpayer/suspect) can only choose one of these options, but if they fail to choose one or fail to make a valid notification. HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) will treat this as a conscious decision not to accept their offer, and HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) will not be bound by any Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF) terms. Accordingly, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) are unable to enter into any discussion about the recipient (taxpayer/suspect) tax affairs. Unless either recipient (taxpayer/suspect) have notified HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) of how the recipient (taxpayer/suspect) wishes to proceed, or the 60-day response period has expired.

If HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) decides to take you to criminal prosecution, then you will have to find a reasonable legal expert (solicitors) to work as a bridge between HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and Zero One Consultants to complete your forensic accounts. Although, in either case, you are being prosecuted as civil or criminal, do not ignore the intensity of the matter. A badly handled case can result in enormous penalties and even risk of losing your assets.

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in their guidance for Code of Practice 9 (COP 9) (HMRC  06/14) strongly recommends you have a professional advice and help due to the complexity and sensitivity of the matter.  

What Zero One Consultants can do for you

If you have received the letter, we advise you to see someone at Zero One Consultants at your earliest convenience. We will guide you further on what to do, how to do it, where to do and how can you appoint Zero One Consultants to deal with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) about your Code of Practice 9 (COP 9). After having some meetings with you, we will provide you with further guidance, where we assess the quantum of tax loss, the scale of the problem, and the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) acquisitions.

There is not necessarily a guilty state after the letter is issued to you. You may have your solid reasons and evidence to support them, or HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) may have been given false information. HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is very open about that; you need to remember that they are only doing their job to act on suspicious activity.

First, you must contact Zero One Consultants with your letter and then we will advise you in our first meeting, which may be free of charge but will be time-limited, and if we come to your place, there will be certain charges involved. In this meeting, we will give you an estimate of how many hours may involve, and there will be upfront or payment on account required and then gradual payments. Final work will be provided to you or HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) after clearing the final bill.
