Tax evasion crackdown targets taxi firms

Eight taxi companies have been targeted in a Government crackdown on suspected tax evasion.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) officials raided firms in counties Antrim, Down and Fermanagh and seized business records.

Michael Connolly, HMRC's taskforce coordinator in Northern Ireland, said: " Tax evasion is a crime that costs society dearly.

"While over 90% of people play by the rules and pay their dues, our taskforces target areas where we see a risk that people won't pay what they owe."

If caught, companies could face a hefty fine or criminal prosecution.
