False Accounting and Tax Evasion Solicitors in Leeds

These allegations are made when it is believed businesses or professional individuals are providing false information in order to avoid tax or to inflate earnings to procure further monetary advantage.

False accounting is a type of financial fraud where a person or organisation deliberately provides false or misleading information in their accounting records or financial statements. This can include inflating revenues, hiding expenses, manipulating financial data, or creating fictitious transactions for further monetary gains.

Tax evasion is an illegal practice of not paying the full amount of taxes owed to the government. This can involve failing to report income, claiming false deductions, or hiding assets to avoid paying taxes.

Both false accounting and tax evasion can have serious legal consequences and the penalties can range from fines to imprisonment.
