this was a tax fraud movie, read it all here 03 july 2013
3 July 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

The producer of the first modern British film to be shot in 3D is today behind bars after he was found guilty of a £1.5 million VAT fraud.

Richard Driscoll was sentenced at Southwark Crown Court to three years in jail. His film, Eldorado, which featured a number of well-known actors, including former Dr Who Sylvester McCoy and Splash actress Daryl Hannah, was the last to be completed by David Carradine, of Kung Fu fame, before he died in 2009.

His jailing comes as the HM Revenue and Customs increasingly cracks down on tax abuse in the film industry. In March, team of producers behind film A Landscape of Lives were jailed for over 22 years between them for a £2.8 million tax scam.

Driscoll falsified invoices for the costs of making films in order to reclaim VAT that he was not entitled to, and set up a number of associated companies that were used solely to commit the crime. He owned a film studio in Cornwall where the films were made.

The claims for repayment of £1.5 million VAT were based on production costs of more than £9 million, but investigators found that the costs were actually less than £1 million.

Bogus invoices were sent to support the false repayment claims and other invoices were genuine but had their values inflated.

In sentencing Driscoll, Judge Pegden, QC, said: "In my opinion this was professionally planned you used your filming expertise for the content of bogus and false invoices."

Driscoll was also disqualified from being a company director for seven years.

Driscoll is a director of Higher Nanpean Film Studios Ltd (HNFS Ltd); House of Fear Ltd (HOF Ltd); House of Fear Film Production Ltd (HOFFP Ltd); and Grindhouse Films Ltd. 3.

Driscoll's Nanpean Studio was based at Redruth, Cornwall.
