New task forces to tackle tax dodgers have been announced by HM Revenue & Customs. The first will focus on the restaurant trade, targeting businesses in London over the coming weeks. The specialist teams - sounds a little like 'The Professionals' - will undertake intensive bursts of compliance activity in specific high risk trade sectors and locations across the UK. HMRC is planning a further nine task forces in 2011/12, with more to follow in 2012/13.

The task forces come as a result of the Government's £900m spending review investment to tackle tax evasion, avoidance and fraud from 2011/12, which aims to raise an additional £7bn each year by 2014/15.
