Two Arrested Over Suspected £70K Furlough Fraud

 


Two people have been arrested over a suspected £70,000 Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme fraud, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has said.

HMRC officers arrested a 43-year-old accountant and a 51-year-old company director after attending two homes in Romford and Walthamstow on Thursday.

HMRC is currently looking into 27,000 “high-risk” claims, with a number of criminal investigations into suspected fraud now under way.

Defrauding the furlough scheme is a very low thing to do!

HMRC Assumes £3.5BN Furlough Fraud/Error

 

It is possible that up to £3.5bn in Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme payments may have been claimed fraudulently or paid out in error.

HMRC told the Public Accounts Committee it estimates that 5-10% of £35BN furlough cash has been wrongly awarded.

Jim Harra, said

"We have made an assumption for the purposes of our planning that the error and fraud rate in this scheme could be between 5% and 10%.

That will range from deliberate fraud through to error."

NB: that is based on HMRC's assumption, rather than any actual facts.

HMRC's Artificial Intelligence

 

As per Tax Journal:

"HMRC aspires to fully digitise the UK tax system. As the number of digitised taxes expands, there is increased scope for the use of artificial intelligence by HMRC. Finance Act 2020 legislates retrospectively for HMRC to use artificial intelligence to carry out its functions. 

Whilst HMRC has said this is simply putting its existing accepted practice beyond doubt, it is likely to reflect HMRC’s intention to increase its use of automation. 

The non-exhaustive list of functions that HMRC may carry out ‘using a computer or otherwise’ suggests at a potentially very broad utilisation of technology which may not always be in the taxpayer’s favour."

There will be tears before bedtime!

HMRC's April - June Performance Report


Performance update: HMRC’s response to coronavirus

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) went through a unique first quarter in the 2020 to 2021 financial year.

HMRC has been at the forefront of the government’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the extraordinary challenges being faced by millions of individuals and businesses. The department successfully developed and implemented schemes at unprecedented speed to deliver financial support to more than 12 million employed and self-employed workers via the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme. In addition, it implemented more than 60 provisional policy changes or easements to help respond to the impact of coronavirus.

The operational priority has been to deliver the government support that aims to protect people’s livelihoods and help businesses get through this difficult time financially. Now the department is seeking to build on what it has learned during the pandemic about large scale delivery and the citizens and businesses it serves as the country emerges from the pandemic. The IT which underpinned the coronavirus support schemes was designed, built and delivered from kitchen tables and spare bedrooms; busy customer service staff answered queries remotely from their own homes for the first time; and 90% of HMRC’s 60,000 workforce were able to immediately work remotely to help stop the spread of the virus when the country went into lockdown.

HMRC’s primary purpose is to collect the money that pays for the UK’s vital public services and pay out the correct financial support to those who are entitled to it, and as we emerge from the pandemic, the department will carry out this vital work in a way that is sensitive to customers’ altered needs and the challenges they face.

Read our quarter 1 performance data, which covers April to June 2020.

Customer service

The department has aimed to maintain consistently high levels of customer service despite the need to move to home working and to divert resources to the coronavirus support schemes. The telephony service in particular was affected by the measures which were put in place to stop the spread of coronavirus; including reducing operating hours and re-deploying advisers to new helplines for the support measures on top of usual workloads. This led to an increase in call wait times in quarter 1 but in circumstances which were unprecedented and unforeseeable.

But there have been notable successes. Customer satisfaction in digital services reached 85.6%, compared to 79.5% in quarter 1 of the 2019 to 2020 reporting year. Part of this is due to the ability to quickly grow webchat capacity, so more staff could support customers from home, and the department delivered around five times the number of webchats that it was doing before the pandemic.

To maintain post handling capacity, changes were made as many customer advisers began to work from home instead of in the office, for example, introducing temporary measures to replace ‘wet stamps’ with digital stamps or remove the need for ‘wet signatures’ so that colleagues did not need to be in the office to process documents.

In order to ease the pressure on the telephone helplines, the department offered enhanced digital capability. It introduced more services into the Personal Tax Account and HMRC App and increased the webchat offer to cover more areas of work. These changes gave customers more of the support they needed without having to contact the helplines, which in turn allowed HMRC’s front line staff to be flexible to customer needs as they developed.

We also innovated in light of the challenges. For example, changes to customs procedures to move key goods quickly through our borders like ventilators, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), denatured alcohol for hand sanitiser and hospital pressure mattresses. HMRC also worked closely with other government departments, such as the Ministry of Defence to clear 400,000 hospital gowns through customs within 45 minutes of flights landing at RAF Brize Norton from Turkey.

Furthermore, as part of the annual tax credits renewals process, changes were introduced to make things easier for customers, reduce demand and keep their money flowing.

Tax collection

Delivering the COVID-19 support measures has been resource-intensive and has affected HMRC’s core compliance activity and tax collection. Recognising this, the quarter 1 compliance yield – tax revenue that would have otherwise been lost without HMRC intervention – is lower than the same quarter in 2019 to 20 because of the realignment of resources during this period.

During this extremely difficult time, HMRC did everything possible to support and protect individuals, businesses and the economy. This included prioritising work to support customers whilst still tackling serious fraud, criminal attacks, and those who promote tax avoidance.

HMRC is also ensuring that it protects the COVID-19 support schemes against abuse from organised criminal attacks, inflated claims and other non-compliance. These schemes were designed in a way that reduced the likelihood of mistakes happening, and removed opportunities for fraud.

Where honest mistakes happen, the department will step in to help customers put it right, but it will continue to take tough action tackle fraud and avoidance. For example, in July, HMRC officers arrested a man in the West Midlands for suspected of Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme fraud, and our investigators will continue to act where foul play is suspected.

The department also continued to work with those customers who wanted to settle their tax disputes with HMRC and compliance work will continue with a specific focus on criminal investigations, debt recovery and National Minimum Wage enforcement.

Looking ahead

It is essential that the tax system continues to work to fund vital public services such as the NHS, so taxpayers should continue to file their returns and pay their tax on time wherever they can. Businesses should also plan for the future - going digital could make a positive difference to their business administration and make interaction with HMRC much easier.

Over time, as the economy reopens and the threat of the virus recedes, the country will slowly return to a steady state – a ‘new normal’ – and HMRC’s activities are no different.

HMRC will of course keep the situation under constant review to ensure that it administers the tax system in a way that supports the nation’s economic recovery.

As the department carefully refocuses its activity back onto its more routine function of collecting tax, it will follow some key principles to make sure that it continues to support the individuals and businesses of the UK, while protecting the tax system and bringing in the money to fund the country’s vital public services.

It will communicate openly and transparently, to give customers as much certainty as possible, so that they have all the relevant information to make the best decisions for their families and businesses, and its approach will be to collect the tax due in a way that recognises the very real needs and challenges that businesses and individuals now face.

More information about this can be found in our issue briefing on how we will continue to support customers and the economy.

Looking further ahead, the government recently published its 10-year vision paper for tax administration. This sets out plans for changes to how tax is charged, paid and collected to be more in tune with how the world now works and will in the future to make it easier for individuals and businesses to keep on top of their responsibilities without adding undue extra burdens.

Jesse Norman MP, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, spoke at the annual conference of the Institute of Chartered Accountants for England and Wales (ICAEW) on HMRC’s response to COVID-19, and his future vision for the tax system.

HMRC Issues Furlough Warning To Thousands

 

The Express reports that HMRC is writing to selected Coronavirus Jobs Retention Scheme (CJRS) claimants who HMRC thinks may have over claimed based on the information HMRC has.

HMRC acknowledged that mistakes happen, particularly during this challenging time.

HMRC will also write to around 3,000 selected employers a week, to ask them to check their claims.

Those who receive a letter may want to note some key dates.

HMRC says the deadline to notify HMRC is the latest of the following:

  • 90 days of receiving the CJRS money they’re not entitled to
  • 90 days of when circumstances changed so that they were no longer entitled to keep the CJRS grant
  • October 20 2020 if they received CJRS money they’re not entitled to, or if their circumstances changed, on or before 22 July.

Good luck!

HMRC Tries To Blame Others For Its Mistakes and Fails

 

Conclusion

45.         HMRC did not go through the process required by Reg 75A and so had not created a deemed liability which could be collected using a Reg 80 determination.  It follows that the determination is invalid.

46.         As a result, in the exercise of my jurisdiction under TMA s 50(7), I decide that the Company has been “ overcharged by an assessment other than a self-assessment” and reduce the Reg 80 determination to nil.  The Company’s appeal is therefore allowed.

HMRC Investigating 8,000 Furlough Fraud Reports

 

Birmingham Live reports that HMRC is probing 8,000 reports of furlough fraud and investigating firms across the UK.

University academics have reported as many as two-thirds of furloughed workers continued working throughout April and May of this year despite technically being on furlough.

Oxford, Zurich, and Cambridge experts claim that only 37% of furloughed workers in the UK reported doing no work at all for their employers during that time.

Second SEISS Tranche Opens This Morning

 

Angela MacDonald, Deputy Chief Executive of HMRC, is quoted by the Express talking about the second tranche of SEISS:

"We are trying very hard to contact all of those people who are eligible in order to help them understand when they can make their claim.

Our claims window is initially open for a four-day period.

But if somebody thinks that they are eligible and they haven't been contacted by us, they can go onto the online system.

It will tell them if they're eligible and when it is that they can make their claim.

But people shouldn't worry about needing to do everything too much in a rush.

If you don't manage it in those first four days, the claim system is actually open until October 19.

So therefore everybody's got the time to do things that suit their working situation at the moment."

HMRC Did Well With SEISS

 

The Mirror reports that HMRC has miscalculated thousands of SEISS grants given to the self-employed to help them through the coronavirus crisis.

It seems that HMRC has overpaid approximately 16,200 grants ( 0.6% of the total).

HMRC has written to all those affected by the error which arose from “failing to take into account all relevant information when determining eligibility”.

They will not be asked to repay the funds, but should expect a lower sum should they make an application for a second grant.

Given the magnitude of the task, and speed with which it was enacted, I think an error rate of 0.6% is bloody good.

Kudos to HMRC on this one!

ICAEW Calls For Independent Oversight of HMRC’s Charter

 

The ICAEW has responded to the consultation on draft revisions to HMRC’s Charter, calling for 

- more detail behind the aspirations, 

- specific performance measurement criteria and

- independent oversight by a body such as the National Audit Office.

 
HMRC’s Charter sets out the standard of behaviour and values that HMRC aspires to when interacting with customers (taxpayers).

The consultation addresses the proposed changes to the HMRC Charter, including whether the draft wording sets the right standards for HMRC customer service and whether it covers the areas that are most important to taxpayers. It also addresses how HMRC should monitor its performance against the Charter.

The ICAEW’s view is that the accessible format of the draft should be retained, but should be backed up with more detail on how the aspirations translate into actions with specific measurement criteria against each action. 

 The ICAEW also calls for HMRC to be held more accountable for its performance against the Charter, perhaps through independent review by a body such as the National Audit Office.

HMRC Accuses GE of $1BN Tax Fraud


In 2012, General Electric’s director of tax policy, Will Morris, received a trophy from HMRC, in recognition for his role in “informing the public debate on large business and tax and condemning tax evasion and abusive tax arrangements with no commercial purpose”.

However, move forward 8 years and HMRC are now accusing GE of a $1BN tax fraud.

The FT reports that the it stems from just before Christmas in 2005 when GE’s tax team convinced HMRC to approve a tax deduction on a controversial transaction that would go on to save the company hundreds of millions of dollars.

The agreement, reached after six months of meetings with HMRC, meant GE could circulate billions of dollars between the US, the UK and Australia without falling foul of Britain’s new anti-arbitrage tax laws, which had come into force just months earlier.

HMRC has claimed that it was deceived by GE during the six months of negotiations in order for it to obtain a “triple dip” tax advantage in all three countries. It has alleged that the US group misled its executives into believing the transaction would be used to invest in an Australian business, when instead, it claims, the money was moved around the group for the purpose of creating tax deductions.

HMRC has asked the High Court to annul the 2005 agreement, which would force GE to pay 15 years of taxes on the transaction, plus interest and fines, totalling more than $1bn.

GE has denied it misled HMRC about the nature of the transaction and hast has countersued in an attempt to force HMRC to drop the case. “GE complies with all applicable tax laws in every country where we do business, and we reject the UK tax authority’s allegations and are vigorously contesting these false claims,” it said in a statement.

The case is expected to turn on what was said in the first meeting between GE and HMRC on April 1 2005. GE claims it was clear about the purpose of the transactions during the meeting.
“The defendants will rely at trial on the evidence of what representations were actually made . . . as opposed to what are now merely inferred by HMRC.”
This will run and run!

HMRC's APN Collateral Damage


Graham Webber, Tax Director of WTT Consulting, is quoted by Contractor UK referring to the high level of withdrawn APNs:

“Except where the sums are large or there is suspected serious abuse or a particular sector is subject to a targeted campaign, such as contractors [have been], the ‘broad-brush’ approach to compliance [which APNs deliver] is sufficient to satisfy those who oversee them.

The fact that it creates confusion and cost and considerable anxiety for individuals on the wrong end of false or inappropriate APNs, we guess is seen as ‘collateral damage’ by HMRC’s strategists.

In short, unless you are worthy of individual attention from HMRC, the ‘one-size-fits-all’ strategy [of APNs] works most of the time, for most people [from the Revenue’s perspective].”

In other words, HMRC doesn't give a flying fuck!

HMRC "Insufficiently Curious"


In a report  (20 July), the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) said the government could not conclude whether the £38bn estimated immediate cost of pensions tax relief in 2018/19 was effective.

The committee also criticised HMRC and HM Treasury for being "insufficiently curious" about how tax reliefs can impact members of different groups in differing ways.

The report said:

"The data HMRC publishes on who receives pensions reliefs is limited and we are concerned that some groups are not benefiting from tax relief on their pension when they should."

Digital Tax Agenda - Good Luck Everyone!

Government sets out draft agenda for a 21st century tax system

The next steps in an ambitious plan to create a modernised digital tax system fit for the 21st century was unveiled by the government today (Tue 21 July).

placeholder

As part of the Treasury’s long-term tax digitisation plan - designed to boost national productivity, make it easier for businesses and people to pay tax and reduce avoidable errors and fraud - HMRC’s Making Tax Digital programme will be gradually extended.

At present, businesses above the VAT threshold of £85,000 are covered by the system, which requires them to keep digital records and provide VAT returns through software. Since it was introduced in 2019 more than 1.4 million businesses have joined the programme, submitting over 6 million returns.

From April 2022, the programme will be extended to all VAT registered businesses with turnover below the VAT threshold (£85,000), and from April 2023, it will apply to taxpayers who file income tax self-assessment tax returns for business or property income over £10,000 annually.

Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Jesse Norman, said:

We are setting out our next steps on Making Tax Digital today, as we bring the UK’s tax system into the 21st century.

Making Tax Digital will make it easier for businesses to keep on top of their tax affairs. But it also has huge potential to improve the productivity of our economy, and its resilience in times of crisis.

Making Tax Digital changes will affect the way that taxes are reported, not the level of tax that is collected. It will help to minimise avoidable mistakes – which cost the exchequer £8.5 billion in 2018-19.

The long lead-in time will allow businesses, landlords and agents time to plan. It also gives software providers enough notice to bring a range of new products to market, including free software for businesses with the simplest tax affairs.

Over 30% of smaller VAT-registered businesses, who are not yet required to use Making Tax Digital, have chosen to do so voluntarily because of the wider benefits the digital tools offer, including fewer errors and increased productivity.

Other countries have already done this - Denmark introduced a digital system back in 2014, and digital reporting is now well-established and has reduced the amount of time businesses spend on their tax affairs.

The extension is part of a number of announcements which deliver on government commitments and give taxpayers clarity over the future direction of travel. As part of this, the government is today also publishing draft legislation for the next Finance Bill, a regular annual publication.
