Businessman jailed for £500,000 VAT fraud lied about selling £4 million of clothes to Paris shops

A businessman who swindled the taxman out of half-a-million pounds in a sophisticated VAT fraud was jailed for two years.

Bulbinder Singh Sandhu (51) falsely claimed his firm, Isher Fashions, in Constance Road, North Evington, supplied £4 million worth of ladies’ clothes to a dozen small shops in Paris.

Leicester Crown Court was told an investigation revealed the sales – which he claimed were in cash – never took place.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) recruited the help of the French authorities and visited all the shops in Paris over the false invoices.
