HMRC have issued an updated Code of Practice 9 (cases of suspected serious fraud) which the taxman issues to taxpayers whose tax investigation is being conducted under the Civil Investigation of Fraud procedures.
This process is the most serious type of tax enquiry and these investigations are carried out by specially trained investigators. The new code is called, not surprisingly, Code of Practice 9 (cases of suspected serious fraud) (2009). It has been updated to include the penalty and appeals regimes but is otherwise unchanged.
