Cheating accountant jailed
20 May 2016
Where would you hide your ill-gotten gains? ACCA accountant Abdul Aziz Patel hid over £100,000 owed in taxes in his children’s bank accounts!
Patel failed to register with HMRC and did not declare his earnings and money from renting out a property – and income of almost £430,000. He also asked clients to pay him in cash and brazenly told them: “HMRC will see the profit made and I would have to pay tax”.
Despite being given a chance to pay the money owed Patel ignored letters from the HMRC. He has now been jailed for four years.
