HMRC INTRODUCES NEWMEASURESTOTACKLE TAX FRAUD


HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has introduced tougher procedures for civil fraud investigations, as part of the Government’s commitment to tackle fraud.


HMRC’s new Contractual Disclosure


Facility (CDF) follows consultation with interested parties in the autumn of 2011.


Under the new facility, HMRC will contact a taxpayer, in writing, to inform them that they are suspected of serious tax fraud, and offer them the opportunity to enter into a contract to disclose that fraud within 60 days. In return, HMRC will agree not to criminally investigate, removing the risk of prosecution


by HMRC. The investigation will then be carried out using civil powers, with a view to a civil settlement for tax, interest and a financial penalty.


Those who choose not to make this commitment will face a full investigation by HMRC – in some cases a criminal investigation with a view to prosecution. And anyone who signs the contract, but does not go on to admit and disclose fraud, will also face the possibility of a criminal investigation.


Taxpayers who are not under investigation, but who want to admit to tax fraud, may


fill out a form voluntarily to request that HMRC consider their suitability for a CDF contractual arrangement. HMRC still retains the discretion to decide which cases are dealt with civilly, and which are investigated with a view to criminal prosecution.


Further information on the changes is available on the HMRC website at www.hmrc.gov.uk/admittingfraud

FLEXIBLE WORKING ATTRACTS TOP TALENT


Flexible working has a bigger impact on job satisfaction than more tangible benefits such as a financial stake in the business, bonus schemes and pensions, according to a new survey.


More than 75 per cent of employees


say flexible working boosts their job satisfaction and improves work-life balance.


Only one in five employees would seriously consider moving employer over the next 12 months, meaning employers work harder to attract the best talent.


UK companies are sharpening their focus on softer workplace benefits to attract and keep the best talent, according to new research, published by Vodafone UK.


The report, ‘Exploring the shift in employee expectations’, shows that flexible working is having a major impact on job satisfaction today, and is now considered more important to UK workers than financial benefits such as a stake in the business, perks, bonus schemes and pensions.

The new research, based on interviews with 1,366 senior managers and employees across UK organisations of all sizes, looked into the biggest influences on job satisfaction. It reveals that work-life balance (cited by 28 per cent of respondents) is nearly as important today as basic salary (cited by 30 per cent of respondents).
