More task forces announced

The latest task forces (and the amounts they expect to raises) will focus on:

  • Northern Ireland (£3.45m)
  • Fast food outlets in East Anglia (£5m)
  • Fraudulent refund claims in the South East (£6m)
  • Midlands jewellery trade (£2.5m)


Treasury minister David Gauke claimed that the 12 task forces launched in 2011-12 are “on track to collect more than £50m” and expected to see another £90 million from the 30+ taskforces launched since.

The cumulative amounts sound impressive in a press release, but HMRC plays its cards close to its chest about revealing how effective the different exercises have been.
