HMRC launches new Fraud Hotline

HM Revenue and Customs has launched a new hotline for the public to report fraud and evasion in the fight against tax fraud.


This service has replaced two separate tax evasion and customs hotlines with one, streamlining HMRC’s intelligence gathering on tax fraud.


The HMRC Fraud Hotline number is: 0800 788 887.


The hotline is open between 8am and 8pm, seven days a week, 365 days a year.


Customers can use the new hotline to report all kinds of tax fraud and evasion, including:


PAYE and National Insurance fraud
• undisclosed offshore investments
• tax credit fraud
• failure to pay UK duty
• tax evasion
VAT fraud


Jennie Granger, HMRC’s director general for customer compliance, said:


“Information provided by the public is a crucial element of HMRC’s work to close the tax gap, so it’s vital that the reporting process is as simple and accessible as possible. The HMRC Fraud Hotline will form an important part of our intelligence-gathering operations to bring in more money for the exchequer and the country.


“We encourage the public to continue to work with us and report any suspected fraud or evasion to us for investigation.”
