CPS promise 5 times as many tax fraud prosecutions.

The DPP announced that the CPS will increase their prosecution rate of tax fraud cases fivefold betweem now and 2015. The last known statistics available point to 200 prosecutions in 2010 with an 86% conviction rate.

It appears , when anaylsing the statement that the emphasis will remain on easy , small targets eg lawyers , accountants , sole traders and investors in alleged tax avoidance vehicles.

Needless to say none of the large corporates/multi nationals or high profile individuals will be touched. This new policy is a complete volte face when compared with HMRC's sabre rattling in the past. They have prosecuted the occasional high profile deterrent policy prosecution but on the whole would prefer to settle quickly with interest and penalties.

We have successfully advised and defended countless inquiries and investigations over the last 30 years and both Jeffrey Lewis and Siobhain Egan of LNL working with leading tax counsel, have an excellent success rate when defending such prosecutions. Contact us if you are arrested/investigated for such allegations immediately.

New Criminal Laws: Tough Action on Stalking

Two new laws are now in force, making stalking a specific criminal offence for the first time. The new laws are part of a package of new government support to prevent domestic and sexual violence.

"Stalking is an appalling crime that destroys lives. The impact on victims can be devastating and we are doing all we can to make sure they have the protection they need and do not have to live in fear," says Crime Prevention Minister Jeremy Browne. "These new offences send a clear message to offenders that stalking is a serious crime and they will be brought to justice for making others' lives a misery."

The new laws - which carry a maximum prison sentence of five years - will provide extra protection for victims and help bring more stalkers to justice.

The Crime Prevention Minister also announced a package of extra support to tackle violence against women and girls, which includes:

  • a £150,000 fund for Domestic Homicide Reviews to help local areas prevent future domestic violence tragedies;
  • the launch of a new declaration against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) - a pocket-sized leaflet designed to be small enough to carry when travelling to help protect those most at risk;
  • an additional £50,000 funding to support frontline agencies tackling FGM; and
  • the re-launch of the Teenage Rape Prevention Campaign aimed at changing attitudes and stopping young people becoming victims of rape or sexual violence.

To arrange a consultation with our specialist criminal lawyers in London please contact Jeffrey Lewis or Siobhain Egan.
