HMRC prepare ‘clampdown’ on plumbers, gas fitters and heating engineers

printer Mail

HMRC have reminded taxpayers who wish to make a disclosure under the Plumbers Tax Safe Plan that they must notify HMRC by 31 May.

Once the chance to register expires, HMRC will ‘use the information held on people working in the plumbing industry to begin an immediate clampdown on those who have chosen not to come forward and take advantage’.

The PTSP is ‘the first initiative in a campaign aimed at tradespeople’, HMRC said.

Other taxpayers who approach HMRC voluntarily can expect broadly the same terms as those on offer through the PTSP.
