HMRC are on the lookout again for more businesses that are not paying the right amount of tax.

The latest taskforces will target traders who do not pay the right amount of tax in:
- Scottish pubs & nightclubs
- Hair & beauty businesses in Northern Ireland
- The motor trade in South Wales, South West Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire & North East England
- Restaurants in South Wales & the South West

Taskforces are specialist teams that undertake intensive bursts of activity in specific high risk trade sectors and locations in the UK. The teams will visit traders to examine their records and carry out other investigations.

Additional task forces were set up recently to tackle the following traders:
- Indoor & outdoor markets in London
- Taxi firms in Yorkshire & the East Midlands
- Property rentals in East Anglia, London, Yorkshire & the North East
- Restaurants in the Midlands

HMRC launched 12 taskforces in 2011/12 and 30 in 2012/13. HMRC are on target to collect more than £50m as a result of the taskforces launched in 2011/12 alone.

HMRC are coming down hard on traders that they find have evaded tax threatening not just heavy fines, but possible criminal prosecution too.

If you think that you have not paid the right amount of tax and are in one of the sectors HMRC are looking to target, or you are behind with your tax affairs, contact us and we can help get you back on track.
