Andrew Meeson, the former President of the Association of Taxation Technicians and three of his business associates who administered a pension scheme, have been charged with stealing £5million through a tax fraud targeting the pension industry.The four – three men and a woman – were arrested last year in dawn raids carried out by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) investigating an alleged multi million pound fraud. The raids took place at residential and business premises in the West Midlands, Derby and Leicester.

Simon De Kayne, Assistant Director of Criminal Investigation for HMRC, said: “Four people have been charged linked to what we believe is a fraud resulting in over £5 million being stolen from public funds. We are committed to bringing such cases to the courts and depriving those involved of the proceeds of their crime.”

Meeson resigned from his role as president of the ATT last week in order to fight the charges.

On April 8 2010, the Pensions Regulator took action to suspend Tudor Capital Mgt from acting as trustees from pension trust schemes at the same time HMRC obtained search warrants for the company.
