Dorset Business Man Charged With Fraud
A Dorset businessman has been charged with a total of eight VAT fraud and false accounting offences.
50 year old James Williams was charged at Southampton Police Station yesterday (17th May), following an investigation by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). The tax loss is estimated to be about £240,000.
HMRC investigators arrested Williams at his home on 16 July 2009 on suspicion of VAT fraud.
HM Revenue & Customs spokesman Lisa Billard said:
“HMRC will not hesitate to investigate tax evaders who ultimately rob the exchequer of public funds. Anyone with information about VAT fraud can contact the Customs Hotline on 0800 59 5000.”
Williams has been released on bail until 26 May 2011 when he will appear at Weymouth Magistrates’ Court.
Investigations are ongoing.
