Reporting suspected tax evasion and fraud
HMRC have launched an online facility for the reporting of suspected tax evasion and fraud relating to Income Tax, Corporation Tax, Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance Tax and National Insurance.
The online facility can be accessed at www.hmrc.gov.uk/tax-evasion.
The team can also be contacted by phone on 0800 788 887. Reports concerning customs or excise duties, VAT and other indirect taxes should be made to the Customs hotline on 0800 59 5000. This includes suspicions of drug smuggling and other illegal imports.
HMRC advises that once notified of suspect activities it is unable to issue any updates due to taxpayer confidentiality rules.
