The likelihood of a tax enquiry by HM Revenue & Customs has continued to increase. Tax authorities from around the world are starting to share information under the Common Reporting Standard. Last year, in excess of 80,000 reports were made to the Tax Evasion Hotline and the number of referrals to HMRC from mortgage lenders broke the 10,000 barrier for the first time.
HMRC can now access all credit and debit card payments to find out the number and value of transactions completed by a specific trader. For example, if a cash based business has declared a turnover of £80,000, with card transactions amounting to £75,000, HMRC will want to know whether £5,000 of cash is an accurate record.
