The Taxman launched five taskforces on 7 November 2011 with the aim of clamping down on tax evasion in various parts of the country.

North West and North Wales – landlords and construction workers

South East – taxpayers who have not submitted all of their tax returns (income tax, corporation tax, VAT, PAYE)

Scotland – scrap metal dealers and fast food outlets

We understand that the Taxman is planning a total of 12 taskforces in 2011/12 with more to follow in subsequent years.

HMRC have said that “these taskforces will come down hard and fast on those who have chosen to break the rules and deliberately evade the taxes they should be paying…..we can and will track you down and you’ll face not only a heavy fine, but possibly a criminal prosecution as well“.

Mmmm, fighting talk – be careful out there!
