Eaves & Co, Leeds, have recently been appointed as tax advisor to a business in a chain of suppliers to prove their case as an innocent trader, in relation to an alleged VAT carousel fraud by another party.
HMRC say that a supplier, some way up the chain from our client, has fraudulently avoided paying VAT over to the authorities. Our client states that they knew nothing of the fraud and have asked us to prove that they are an innocent trader.
The matter continues.
