Film Scheme Fraud

Successive governments in the UK have appreciated the value of maintaining and nurturing a British Film Industry. It creates jobs for those taking part in the production of the films and contributes to both the UK economy and our cultural life. In order to encourage and incentivise the making of films in the UK there have been (since 1982) a series of allowances and reliefs available within the tax system. These have changed over the years as H.M. Revenue & Customs believe there has been a targeted abuse of the various systems created. There have been a number of prosecutions arising out of the alleged improper use of film scheme tax relief schemes and one recent case of note is one that we, as a firm, were engaged in - namely “Operation Crystallite”.

Smoking In Private Cars

Prior to 1 October 2015, smoking in a private car was not an offence. However, if the police believed that due to the driver smoking, their driving fell below the standard expected of a competent driver or they did not show consideration for other road users, the driver could be prosecuted for the offence of Driving Without Due Care And Attention (Careless Driving) – the maximum sentence being a £5,000 fine and 9 points or a discretionary disqualification.
