Help HMRC stop illegal trading and fraud

Introduction

Every year HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and UK Visas and Immigration seize large volumes of illegal drugs and smuggled alcohol and tobacco, playing an important part in protecting society, bringing criminals to justice and avoiding loss of revenue from duty and taxes.

Much of this work is built upon intelligence gathered from members of the public and business community.

This guide shows how business owners and individuals can help HMRC and UKVI by providing information, anonymously if necessary, about illegal trading in goods and about tax fraud.
