Code of Practice 8 Investigations are normally initiated when the HMRC has suffered considerable loss due to either a complex tax avoidance or arrangement scheme. It is not carried out with the aim of a criminal prosecution and is, therefore, not treated as a tax fraud.

Consequently, it is imperative that a COP 8 tax investigation is taken seriously and a specialist advisor is obtained.
