It is a worrying trend that more businesses are unwittingly finding themselves embroiled in this type of fraud. Recent tribunal cases have highlighted that HMRC are winning more cases against legitimate businesses that in their view have not undertaken the necessary due diligence in relation to their supply chains. This can have severe financial repercussions on a business. You need to be aware of the impact and how you can mitigate the risk by taking some simple steps to protect your business.
