County Armagh man arrested in multi-million VAT fraud

A county Armagh man has been arrested in connection with a suspected multi million pound VAT fraud, linked to the transport industry, after an investigation by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

HMRC officers searched a private address in County Armagh and a business address in Co Tyrone this morning where they seized computers and business records, they believe are related to the fraud.

Mike Parkinson, Assistant Director, Criminal Investigation, HMRC, said: “HMRC takes tax fraud extremely seriously and anyone deliberately choosing to evade the taxes they owe should expect not only a heavy fine, but possibly a criminal prosecution as well.”

Perhaps he wouldn’t pay VAT return.

The man is being questioned by HMRC and investigations are continuing.
