The Chancellor announces new clamp down on Tax Dodgers
HMRC have expanded its compliance and enforcement programme by announcing a wave of new taskforces to investigate evasion in specific commercial and geographical sectors:
The task force focusing on restaurants has prosecuted 30 companies under the initial exercise, and HMRC is projecting a yield of more than £13m. HMRC hopes that taking in the Midlands will add another £2.5m to that total.
Lavinia Newman of ABDS says:
“These new task forces reflect the scrutiny that has always focused on historic cash trades. With more task forces to come in 2012-13 we strongly advise those who have evaded tax to consider voluntary disclosures, which usually mean lower penalties and less likelihood of prosecution.”
ABDS estimates, some 25 campaigns have now been undertaken since the beginning of 2011; with around 20 or so more due to be set in train during 2012/13. According to Exchequer secretary David Gauke, the 12 taskforces launched in 2011/12 are on target to collect more than £50m.
