Chartered accountant Christopher Lunn has been charged with tax fraud and summonsed to appear before Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 15 August.
The decision to prosecute was authorised by Matthew Wagstaff of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) Central Fraud Division, based on material put together from the HMRC investigation.
Lunn, who last year won a partial victory against HMRC in overturning an ban from him acting as an agent, advised TV stars such as the BBC’s Fiona Bruce and actor Sean Pertwee.
