“Tipping Off”

Section 49 of the Act prohibits any person who knows that a report has been made from making any disclosures likely to prejudice any ongoing or future investigation.

There are a number of defences to the offence of “tipping off”. You can cease acting for a client after making a report to the Gardaí and Revenue and indicate that you are ceasing to act on account of your unhappiness with a particular transaction.
