£1 Million Tax Fraud Results In 3 Arrests

An ongoing HMRC investigation into a £1 million tax fraud has resulted in two men and a woman from Newry being arrested. In February 2018 16 places of business were raided and searched by more than 120 HMRC officers across Northern Ireland, including locations such as Newry, Newtownabbey and Armagh.

As part of the raids carried out my HMRC, physical and digital business records were seized for further investigation in relation to the suspected tax fraud that is believed to be in the region of £1 million. The individuals arrested, aged 49, 47 and 37, were all released on bail.

Steve Tracey, assistant director of HMRC's fraud investigation service, said that "tax fraud is often thought victimless, but it isn't; the public lose out on vital funds for essential services. We will continue to work with our partners to tackle this crime."
