Top tax criminals get over 150 years behind bars

The 32 top tax criminals of 2012 have been sentenced to a combined total of 155 years and 10 months behind bars.

HMRC have also published photographs on their Flickr site of the UK’s top tax cheats.

Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury David Gauke said:
“The Government is committed to closing in on tax evaders. Collectively the 32 criminals have been sentenced to more than 150 years. We hope that publishing these pictures will help get across that it always makes sense to declare all your income, and tax dodgers are simply storing up trouble for the future.”

Tonmoy Kumar, Manager of the Accounts Department of ABDS comments:
“A tax evasion campaign has been launched by HMRC as part of the Government’s £917 million investment to tackle tax evasion, avoidance and fraud from 2011 to 2012. This has been added to with a further £77 million which was announced in Decembers Autumn Statement. This will aim to raise an additional £7 billion each year by 2014 to 2015.”
