Tax taskforce

Have your say

A NEW taskforce to tackle tax dodgers in the region’s motor trade has been launched.

HM Revenue & Customs has put together the specialist teams that will visit traders.

Mike Eland, director general of enforcement and compliance, said: “Everyone needs to pay the taxes they owe in full.

“These new taskforces will help us crack down on the minority who have chosen to break the rules.

“If you have paid all your taxes you have nothing to worry about, but deliberately evading tax you should be paying can land you with not only a heavy fine, but possibly a criminal prosecution as well.”
