A former chartered accountant who was jailed for a £60,000 fraud is helping inmates get tax rebates of up to £1,000.
AccountingWEB reported last October that Paul Retout, the former chief executive of Wrexham FC, was jailed for 16 months after submitting false invoices to London-based Quadrangle group where he was a partner, media reported at the time.
But Retout who was sent to HMP Wandsworth in London, has been offering inmates ‘tax seminars’, according to the Daily Mail.
Writing in Inside Time magazine, Retout said many of the UK's 85,000 prisoners are due a tax rebate.
