Are you in an industry that is highly regulated by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), but are not covered by AWRS or Notice 196?
HMRC have widespread powers and if they believe there is a problem in any area they will impose their sanctions with little thought about whether you are an innocent party in the supply chain. Comprehensive due diligence checks into who you deal with are essential in ensuring that you are dealing with legitimate and real businesses, as well as to provide evidence to defend yourself if HMRC decide to impose financial securities and penalties or a criminal prosecution.
You must be able to demonstrate you are an innocent party and have no means of knowledge of fraudulent activity in your supply chains. Effective due diligence controls are the only way to evidence this and keep your business safe.
