A MAN and woman have been arrested over an alleged £13,000 VAT repayment fraud linked to the motor trade.
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) officers searched three business and a home as part of the inquiry.
The raids took place in the Tandragee, Armagh, Loughgilly and Craigavon areas on Thursday morning where they seized documents, records and a quantity of cash.
The pair are currently being questioned by HMRC officers and investigations are continuing.
John Whiting, HMRC assistant director for criminal Investigation, said: “HMRC takes tax fraud extremely seriously and we will not hesitate to investigate those we suspect of choosing to evade taxes or stealing public funds.
“Anyone with information about people who may be involved in tax fraud can contact the Tax Evasion Hotline on 0800 788 887.”
