HMRC received 91,000 calls to report fraud in first months of pandemic
17 May 2021 Data published by insurer PfP has revealed that HMRC received 91,000 calls to report instances of fraud in the first nine months of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. PfP stated that many calls were to report abuse of the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, and others were to log allegations of furlough fraud. The insurer predicts that more intensive investigations will be carried out and tougher penalties may be handed out by HMRC in the coming months. ‘With so many fraud allegations being made to HMRC during the COVID-19 crisis, there is no doubt that many of them will end up being false,’ said Kevin Igoe, MD at PfP.
HMRC sets out penalty regime for SEISS abuse
06 May 2021 The fourth Self-Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant is now live and HMRC has set out the penalties for abuse. An overclaimed SEISS grant includes any amount of grant which the self-employed were not entitled to receive or was more than the amount HMRC said the applicant was entitled to when the claim was made. Overpayments must be notified to HMRC within 90 days of receipt of an SEISS grant. When deciding the amount of any penalty, HMRC will take account whether the taxpayer knew they were entitled to the SEISS grant when they received it and when it became repayable or chargeable to tax.
HMRC contacting claimants for fourth self-employed grant
26 April 2021 The online service for applications for the fourth Self-employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant is now open for claims, HMRC has confirmed.

The fourth grant will be 80% of three months’ average trading profits, to be claimed from late April 2021. Payment will be in a single instalment capped at £7,500 in total and will cover the period February to April 2021. The scheme has been extended to those who filed a 2019/20 self-assessment tax return prior to 3 March 2021.
