The £2.5 billion lost to Carousel Fraud has been recovered by HMRC by illegally putting a blanket ban on VAT repayments to all Traders in the Mobile phone Industry.for the last 18 months . Many Companies have had to close as the average sum owed by HMRC seems to be £1million per company and many of the larger companies are owed multi million pound sums. Our Government can do what it pleases and no one says a word.
