Five Arrested of Suspected VAT Fraud

Five Arrested of Suspected VAT FraudFive people have been arrested following an HMRC investigation into suspected multi-million pound VAT fraud and money laundering.

The men were arrested on 10 August for conspiracy to cheat the Inland Revenue.  All are alleged to work in the motor home and caravan industry.

The men arrested are part of an organised crime syndicate. It is believed the group created a chain of companies and false paperwork for the sole purpose of reclaiming VAT.

The syndicate recouped VAT money on purchases of equipment in the UK which it then allegedly exported to the European Union. HMRC believes the goods never existed.
