A man from Co Tyrone has been arrested in connection with a suspected £150,000 VAT fraud linked to the construction industry.
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) officers searched a private address in the Omagh area this morning where they seized documents and a computer.
John Whiting, Assistant Director, Criminal Investigation, HMRC, said:
“HMRC takes tax fraud extremely seriously and anyone deliberately choosing to evade the taxes they owe should expect not only a heavy fine, but possibly a criminal prosecution as well. Anyone with information about people who may be involved in tax fraud can contact the Tax Evasion Hotline on 0800 788 887.”
The man was questioned by HMRC officers and investigations are continuing.
