HMRC launches new fraud hotline

HMRC has launched a new hotline for the public to report tax fraud and evasion.


This service has replaced two separate tax evasion and customs hotlines with one, aiming to streamline HMRC’s intelligence gathering on tax fraud.


The HMRC Fraud Hotline: 0800 788 887


It is open between 8am and 8pm, seven days a week, 365 days a year. It can be used to report all kinds of tax fraud and evasion, including:

  • PAYE and National Insurance fraud
  • undisclosed offshore investments
  • tax credit fraud
  • failure to pay UK duty
  • tax evasion
  • VAT fraud
