HMRC launches map to pinpoint UK tax cheats online

HMRC is asking for feedback and suggestions on its digital pilot, including a bank of its most wanted criminals and an interactive map to see where people are cheating tax in the UK.

An interactive map of jailed tax cheats in the UK has been launched in a bid to showcase the impact of the HMRC's work to target fraudsters.

The website reveals tax fraud convictions since April 2013, as well as details of people caught and jailed. Unfortunately, tax evasion schemes like the HSBC scandal revealed this weekend, will not yet feature on the visualisation.

However, the map will be updated monthly and will begin to include details of tax cheats who were given non-custodial sentences in the near future, HMRC said.

HMRC’s chief executive, Lin Homer, said: “HMRC is prosecuting more tax cheats every year and targeting more trades and professions where we have identified that tax revenue is at risk. This map shows the scale of our criminal investigation operations, so tax cheats should be seriously worried that HMRC is coming for them next.”

HMRC have prosecuted almost 3,000 people cheating tax since 2010 resulting in 2,700 years of jail time. Between 2013-14 it clawed back £23.9 billion of additional revenue from tax cheats.

The map provides, along with the location, the nature and value of the fraud and resulting enforcement. London frauds include a £86,000,000 fraud in Kensington as well as a number of tobacco and VAT-dodging investigations.

David Gauke, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, said: “HMRC’s investigators are catching tax cheats in every corner of the country and we want people to be able to see the outcome of this enforcement action.”

"HMRC’s new online enforcement map shows tax cheats that when they are caught they can face hefty prison sentences.
