Tax cheat expelled from English ICA after #620,000 swindle.

An English ICA disciplinary tribunal has expelled Howard Roy Appleyard from the profession for cheating the Inland Revenue out of more than #620,000 over a period of 15 years. The tribunal has ordered Appleyard to pay costs of #962 and recommended that he should not be readmitted for at least five years. Between March 1980 and June 1995 the accountant helped a Grimsby meat wholesaler hide profits in offshore companies to avoid paying corporation tax on the profits. Disciplinary action was brought against Appleyard, 55, a partner of Scunthorpe firm C. H. Jefferson following a Crown Court conviction against him in September 1999. Appleyard was found guilty by a Grimsby Crown Court for defrauding the public revenue and was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment in October 1999. The institute’s tribunal found the defendant was guilty of ‘failing to submit returns for corporation tax relating to a limited company.’ He was also found guilty of failing to account for corporation tax on the profits of a limited company and concealing the fact that the limited company was managed and controlled from the United Kingdom by his co-accused.’
