HMRC Launches New Tax Fraud Hotline

HM Revenue and Customs has launched a new phone-in service for the public to report tax fraud and evasion.

HMRC said that the service will replace the two separate tax evasion and customs hotlines with one, streamlining its intelligence-gathering efforts on tax fraud.

Customers can report all kinds of tax fraud and evasion on the new hotline, including Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and National Insurance fraud, undisclosed offshore investments, non-payment of the National Minimum Wage, tax credit fraud, failure to pay UK duty, tax evasion, and value-added tax (VAT) fraud.

"Information provided by the public is a crucial element of HMRC's work to close the tax gap, so it's vital that the reporting process is as simple and accessible as possible," said Jennie Granger, HMRC's Director General for Customer Compliance. "The HMRC Fraud Hotline will form an important part of our intelligence gathering operations to bring in more money for the Exchequer and the country."
