In cases like this, the police will usually just say it’s a civil matter. This they would want an open ready fraud case! I know it’s somewhat frustrating because this is clearly defrauding creditors but from experience, that’s the way it would be looked at.
I am aware of one client who took £18,000 from the company bank account of the limited company a week before it went into liquidation. HMRC were owed £25,000 and they wanted it (I cannot remember where he spent it) and they bankrupted him.
So, if HMRC get wind of this, they will take it on board. They will also pursue a criminal prosecution if they think it appropriate.
There’s nothing to stop it being brought to the HMRC attention!
