Local Compliance Fraud (COP 9)
Since 6 April 2015 all cases previously worked by HMRC's Local Compliance Fraud units have been transferred to the jurisdiction of the elite national Specialist Investigations teams.
All of these cases were being dealt with under the taxman's Contractual Disclosure Facility Code of Practice 9: HMRC investigations where we suspect tax Fraud. COP9 tax investigations are the most serious and worrying of all tax enquiries (apart from criminal prosecutions). It is used where the tax investigators believes they have strong evidence of tax being underpaid, due to deliberate and serious tax fraud, but have decided not to prosecute - if the target taxpayer admits to all tax irregularities, and tells the taxman all the details by way of a Full Disclosure Report.
Lynam Tax Enquiry Experts have experience of proving to HMRC that a good number of COP 9 cases were investigated for incorrect reasons, and we've had a number of cases closed with no additional money to pay. However, most Contractual Disclosure Facility (CoP 9) cases are based on solid evidence, and need to be treated seriously. It is essential you take proper advice from qualified and experienced professionals at the earliest opportunity. HMRC themselves recommend that recipients of COP 9 should engage a specialist to help them.
