A company director has been jailed for three years and four months after admitting a multi-million pound tax fraud.
Dabinder Powar, 48, of Bronte View, Gravesend, admitted false accounting by dishonestly falsifying company bank statement with the intent to make a gain for himself, when he appeared at Blackfriars Crown Court.
Powar, who was director of Westrip Holdings Ltd in Bedford Row, London, was arrested in March 2013 and found to have falsified the accounts between July 2009 and February 2012.
During that time he failed to record credits which had been made into the account to the value of £527,477.20.
He also failed to record debits which had been made from the said account to the value of £2,889,732.79 and he showed incorrect account balance figures for the account.
