WHAT WE DO:
REMOVING THE BOUNDARIES
When somebody enters prison, their taxation affairs are typically left to ‘fester’ in the mistaken belief that the prisoner is somehow protected from dealing with HMRC. Make no mistake, HMRC will continue to pursue an individual whilst in prison, for outstanding tax affairs including tax debt. We help prisoners with their tax affairs whilst in prison and work with HMRC resolving their tax issues. We also work with prisoners after release to ensure that their tax affairs are kept current and help them understand their tax obligations. Prison provides an ideal to opportunity to bring prisoner tax affairs up- to-date whilst educating prisoners on taxation matters and preparing for them to be reintegrated into society.
WE CAN HELP:
SEE THINGS CLEARLY
The Tax Academy helps prisoners with their tax affairs in prison by currently providing free taxation support, particularly where accountants have simply abandoned their tax affairs. Most importantly we conduct a dialogue with HMRC on behalf of the prisoner. Unfortunately, there is a lack of co-ordinated support for prisoners within prisons and quite often their tax affairs are left until they are released. We provide that necessary tax support and advice to prisoners. Prisoners have a point of contact for assistance with their tax affairs whilst they are in prison, and help on the outside when they are trying to establish a business or gaining employment when they are released from prison as part of their resettlement.
