As part of its programme to frighten people not to commit tax fraud, HM Revenue and Customs has launched a new telephone line for would-be informers to report tax fraud and evasion.
The Taxman is encouraging members of the public to report all types of tax fiddles, including: business and personal tax evasion; employment tax frauds (e.g. PAYE and National Insurance); undisclosed offshore investments; underpayment of the National Minimum Wage; Tax Credits fraud; failure to pay excise duty, and VAT irregularities.
HMRC’s Director General for Customer Compliance, said: “Information provided by the public is a crucial element of HMRC’s work. The HMRC Fraud Hotline is an important part of our intelligence gathering operations to bring in more money. We encourage the public to report any suspected fraud or evasion to us for investigation on 0800 788 887.”
