Hmrc In Tax Crackdown On Restaurant Owners

Recommended Posts


Tax inspectors are to investigate restaurants in London and other parts of the UK to hunt down tax dodgers in the food trade.

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is setting up a series of special units to track down tax evaders.

The restaurant team will start in the capital before moving onto food outlets in Scotland and the North West.

The move follows a similar recent campaign to persuade plumbers to come clean about their tax affairs.


HMRC says it will set up nine other similar task forces during the current tax year, with more to come next year.

Did they setup a BTL task team? (seem to have plumbing and food units in place).

** Though a unit is probably one or two FTE's ?

They announced a crack down a few months ago for chippies and resturants in Leeds recently, HMRC effectively said they would follow the potato delivery man around all day to see how many sacks of potatoes they sold vs how much chippies declared.

It didn't work as the potato man (who didn't declare everything either) tipped everybody on his route off and delivered the shortfall the next day. Potato men aren't just meat heads they speak multiple languages :)

Note they caught nobody :D
