Tackling VAT evasions on road vehicles brought into the UK

Published on 2 September 2011

In our response to the joint DVLA and HMRC consultation ‘Tackling VAT evasions on road vehicles brought into the UK’ we highlight the problems that low income individuals, particularly migrant workers coming into the UK, will experience in complying with the proposed new communication and timing procedures.

HMRC recently announced new proposals to tackle VAT evasion when new and used vehicles are brought into the UK. Whilst we understand that the main emphasis in tackling evasion is to counter fraud we are concerned that many low-income unrepresented individuals will encounter difficulty in complying with them.
