TAX dodgers, including a Bolton coach operator, are being named on a list published by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) for the first time, as their affairs come under greater scrutiny.
HM Revenue and Customs has included Brian Clifford Tattersall on a list of North West businesses it says are defaulting on their obligations.
The list highlights “deliberate defaulters” who were found during investigations by HMRC into affairs conducted after April 2010. In these cases, the culprits had each not paid more than £25,000 of tax.
The list was announced as part of HMRC’s work to combat tax evasion and non-accompliance. Mr Tattersall was based at Pixmore Avenue at the time of the defaults, covering periods from December 2010, to February 2012, it said.
HMRC said five penalty amounts, totalling £52,308, were imposed on Mr Tattersall based on five tax amounts totalling £87,918.
Tax bosses said it was ensuring everyone pays their fair share, creating a level playing field for honest people and businesses, and cracking down on the minority who seek to evade tax.
It also said the business people on the list may have since changed their behaviour, moved address or be under new management.
Mr Tattersall could not be contacted by The Bolton News
