When instructed by solicitors representing defendants in criminal investigations, our expertise in understanding the issues enables us to identify efficiently both used and “unused” evidence relevant to the matter. We consider carefully if the accountancy evidence presented on behalf of the prosecution is accurate, complete and consistent with the defendant’s explanations. Our conclusions include an objective view on the extent to which the accounting evidence provides alternative explanations for the case presented by the prosecution.
There are many instances in which the type of information sought by us has not been cited by the prosecution but plays an important role in dealings with the prosecution and sometimes results in charges against defendants being dropped in their entirety.
Our experience on criminal defence cases includes VAT carousel fraud, money laundering, HMRC investigations, conspiracy to import controlled drugs, theft and fraudulent trading.
