Conduct: Whilst acting as a director of Crowntree Investments Limited (“Crowntree”), Nirvair Singh Sanghera (“Mr Nirvair”) caused Crowntree to file false VAT returns.

  • HMRC visited Crowntree on 30 April 2015 and raised various queries as they had been unable to verify invoices. As a result, Crowntree incurred VAT assessments totalling £31,510 for the period 05.12 to 11.14, the period in which he was the sole director.
  • On 22 December 2015, HMRC confirmed that they intended to pursue a deliberate and concealed penalty as they believed that Crowntree had fabricated invoices to claim input tax that was never charged or relating to a supply that never happened.
  • An appeal was made and the matter was reviewed by HMRC but their decision was upheld and Crowntree were advised of this on 16 June 2016.
  • By reason of the above, HMRC’s claim for VAT of £87,473 remained due at liquidation. Of this, £72,273 was incurred whilst he was the sole director of which £31,510 is in respect of unpaid assessments and £40,763 is in respect of a civil penalty.
