COP 9 – Code Of Practice 9

The COP9 Can Be A Dangerous Document If Not Dealt With Immediately – Do Not Delay

If you have received a COP9, you have only 60 days to decide what route you are going to take and issue a response – ideally within the first couple of days to promote the idea of cooperation. Failure to do so can result in you being treated as non-cooperative and a criminal investigation.

Why Have I Received A COP9?

Receiving a COP9 happens in cases that HMRC strongly suspect that large scale tax fraud is taking place, this is a very serious happening and failing to act appropriately can result in a criminal investigation, your home and business premises being raided by police in order to obtain the correct records and items or assets of monetary value and more. Upon receiving receiving a COP9, you must respond within 60 days, it is therefore imperative that you contact us as soon as possible to avoid HMRC treating your lack of response as non-cooperation.
