Why You Need an Attorney When You’re Being Audited

July 10, 2019

When a company is audited by a government agency of any type, it can lead to big legal issues for the company and its employees. If your company is being audited, you may want to speak to an attorney. Here’s why you should have a lawyer during this process.

Protect Yourself from Potential Legal Hazards

When a company is audited by a government agency, it usually means that they suspect that there is something wrong within the company and its operations. They are looking for mistakes and errors in which you can be prosecuted. It is important that you have an attorney to represent you in the event that they find something that they can use to accuse you of a white-collar crime.

Protect Yourself from Incrimination

When you speak to agents doing the audit, they may try to get you to admit to wrongdoing. Even if you are explaining what happened with the item in question, what you say could incriminate you further if you are not careful. When you have an attorney representing you, they can guide you in dealing with the agents performing the audit so that you do not accidentally incriminate yourself.

Protect Yourself from Fines and Jail Sentences

If a white-collar crime is alleged against you or your company, you need an attorney familiar with the case to represent you. White-collar crimes come with hefty fines and sometimes a jail sentence. Do not face these charges alone. If you get an attorney at the beginning of the process when the audit first occurs, the attorney will be better prepared to deal with any charges that are brought.

If your company is the subject of an audit, now is the time to take action to protect yourself. Contact us today for more information or to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
