Using a social media photography website, it has publicised details of 30 of the UK’s top tax criminals who have been sentenced to a combined total of more than 155 years behind bars.
The name and shame process is part of the Government’s widely publicised campaign against tax evaders and tax avoidance.
Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury David Gauke said: “The Government is committed to closing in on tax evaders. Collectively the 32 criminals have been sentenced to more than 150 years. Most people play by the rules and pay what they owe, but HMRC is cracking down on those who don’t.
"We hope that publishing these pictures will help get across that it always makes sense to declare all your income, and tax dodgers are simply storing up trouble for the future.”
