Should you be subject to a tax enquiry (civil or criminal), benefit fraud, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) enquiry, under the guidelines of Code of Practice 8 (COP 8) and Code of Practice 9 (COP 9) for all but not limited to these types of taxes, Corporation Tax, Self-Assessment (partial or all aspects), Value Added Tax (VAT), Pay as You Earn (PAYE) or Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) and benefit frauds or overpayments under the Code of Practice 26 (COP26), then you need a team of skilled professionals such as Zero One Consultants with you on your side to defend your interest.
Zero One Consultants is sorry to hear you are subject to a tax enquiry, and we offer our best knowledge and skills to help you out from this situation. We have detailed as much information as you may need to understand what you are going through. Any benefit fraud or benefit overpayments investigation can be daunting, bank-breaking, embarrassing and challenging and can be a name and shame outcome as well. Unfortunately, most benefit frauds reported in the UK are purely an element of jealousy or broken-down relationships or divorces or many other social problems. So even if you are a victim of benefit fraud reporting, this is a hassle you must go through until the law enforcement agencies complete their checks.
As mentioned earlier, Zero One Consultants believe in the fact but do not ignore the reality of letters issued under the Code of Practices to Taxpayers for any tax concerns. Once you have received a letter from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for any enquiry or investigation, delaying it, ignoring it, contacting inexperienced or unqualified professionals, window shopping around for a cheap accountant's quote will not help you but will adversely affect you. These matters must be dealt with high sensitivity, extra care, and diligence by knowledgeable, skilled professionals, not by the jack of all trades. Forensic accountancy sciences is a very niche skill. Zero One Consultants have learned over time that there is a spike in the terms such as "Forensic Accountants", "Tax Investigation Specialist", "Professional Opinion Witness", etc. Zero One Consultants must stress not taking the matter lightly and not being the victim of false or fake advertising and marketing tactics. We also must advise selecting your representative wisely. Before you appoint them make sure they are qualified, experienced enough, regulated by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and by their professional regulators for money laundering and financial regulation purposes. Finally, they are insured to do the work for which they are claiming. Unfortunately, this will be time-consuming, frustrating, and expensive if you are in this situation, especially if it turns into Code of Practice 9 (COP 9), but Zero One Consultants can assure you that in this challenging and complex time, Zero One Consultants will be there for you and your assistance.
