Runcorn recycling boss who stole employees' tax jailed

A businessman from Runcorn, who stole more than £112,000 from his workers' pay packets, has been jailed for 2 years after an investigation by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) uncovered his crimes. For over 5 years, Kevin Cheung, 41, director of Ace Recyclers Limited, deducted Income Tax and National Insurance contributions (NIC) from his employees' wages, but instead of paying it to HMRC he pocketed the cash.  Cheung also failed to fully declare his own income from 3 companies between 2008 and 2014. He understated his true income on Self Assessment (SA) Tax Returns sent to HMRC and was also jailed for evading over £14,000 Tax he owed. Cheung admitted that he was responsible for completing PAYE payroll, on behalf of his business and that he had submitted false Tax Returns for himself. He pleaded guilty to 3 Tax Fraud offences, at Chester Crown Court, on Monday, 11 April 2016. He was sentenced, the same day, to 2 years imprisonment for the PAYE fraud and 10 months for each SA fraud to run concurrently. The court took into consideration that his failure to pay Income Tax and NICs on behalf of his employees resulted in their Tax and NICs records being incomplete, thereby affecting the ability of the employees to access state benefits and pensions.
