HMRC have announced a new policy to subject cetain people / businesses found to have committed tax offences to detailed forward scrutiny, including

~ announced and unannouced visits
~ extra documentation requrements
~ checking with customers and suppliers

The extra scrutiny could be for 2 to 5 years.

They are only talking about 900 people initially – so probably only the most serious cases? Unless they take some less serious ones as a trial as well.
