Arrests over suspected £15m Tax fraud

6 people have been arrested in connection with a suspected £15 million Tax fraud involving restaurants and wholesalers believed to be laundering money using offshore accounts and companies. More than 80 officers from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) searched three residential and 5 business addresses in Cheshire, Manchester, Merseyside and London. Cash, computers, business and personal records were seized during the operation.  The arrests were made as a result of an investigation into the Tax arrangements of various businesses, suspected Tax fraud and associated money laundering.

Andrew Sackey, Deputy Director, Fraud Investigation Service, HMRC, said:- "The vast majority pay the Tax they owe. But no 1 is beyond our reach and we will act against those suspected of hiding money offshore.  Businesses committing Tax Fraud steal from the public purse and have an unfair advantage over honest competitors. If anyone has information about suspected Tax fraud, please contact the HMRC 24 hour hotline on:- 0800 59 5000."

The operation was supported by a cash detection dog team. The people arrested have been interviewed and released on bail pending further enquiries.
