Q&A

 

What’s the most serious type of regulatory offence?

All types of regulatory offences, from fire safety breaches to tax offences, can be considered extremely serious. Depending on the specifics and severity of the case, any of the offences listed above can lead to a term of imprisonment in the event of a guilty verdict.

 

Can my business be closed down for regulatory offences?

Yes. Bodies such as Trading Standards do not have the authority to close down a business, but if a court order is secured in relation to any regulatory offence then it is possible for your business to be closed down.

 

What offences does HMRC cover? 

Not only do tax offences come under the remit of HMRC, but state support payments, fraud and regulatory regimes including the minimum wage are also in this category.
