HMRC intensifies efforts to claw back pandemic payouts

17-11-2021

HMRC has ramped up efforts to recoup £1bn from fraudulent or incorrect furlough pay-outs, with more than 26,500 investigations into potentially fraudulent pandemic support claims launched over the past eight months. The probes also cover the income support scheme for the self-employed and the "eat out to help out" initiative. With HMRC having planned to target about 30,000 cases over a three-year period, the Guardian’s Richard Partington says the fact that officials have already opened nearly as many cases this year suggests the total is likely to be much higher than originally anticipated.
