Experienced Accounting Firm Issues an Important Scam Warning
Are you looking for a chartered accountant or chartered tax advisor near Banstead and Epsom? The most reputable and experienced accounting firms keep their clients well informed of essential changes and requirements of UK tax laws and programs and watch for scams that can cost your business large amounts of money. Scams are becoming more sophisticated and often are difficult to detect as scams. They use language and structure that closely mimics actual communications from HMRC. The best tax accountants can identify these scams for you and warn you before costly mistakes occur.
David Beckman and Co. LTD recently became aware of an exceptionally aggressive HMRC letter scam. The perpetrators of the scam demand payment for past tax liability or penalty, and they ask people to call a number that looks like an official HMRC number, but it is not. Other red flags that emerge from this scam include that HMRC does not ask you to call and arrange payment details; they ask for payment. One client received a letter dated back to 2013, but HMRC typically only goes back six years. A Google search of the phone number on the letter provides a warning that this scam is particularly aggressive and claims that you have committed tax fraud. The letter itself warns of a scam but misspells the word ‘phishing’ as ‘phising.’ The accountants at David Beckman and Co. LTD advise you to contact them about any doubtful communications from HMRC.
The chartered tax accountants and tax advisors at David Beckman and Co LTD understand the importance of keeping you informed of everything that impacts your business. They partner with you for the long term to help your business achieve the goals you envision. Whether identifying scams or making you aware of tax savings and grants for your business, David Beckman and Co LTD help keep your business operating at peak efficiency.
