Sutton Council has launched a recycling campaign explaining what can and cannot be recycled, and to sort out recycling fact from fiction. The campaign seeks to clarify which items should go in the brown waste bin or the green recycling bin – for example, disposable coffee cups cannot be recycled, but their lids and sleeves can be. The council is also seeking to dispel some recycling myths by encouraging borough residents through social media to ask the experts their questions about recycling. Before launching the campaign, more than 300 Sutton residents were interviewed to assist in understanding borough recycling...

Knowingly getting involved in fraudulent transactions can affect your business

Missing trader fraud also known as ‘carousel fraud’ usually involves small high value goods such as computer chips or mobile phones which are imported free of VAT from other EU member states. The goods are then sold in the UK for an amount including VAT but the trader then goes missing and never pays the VAT due to HMRC. If a reputable business gets caught up in a fraudulent transaction they risk having VAT input tax deductions removed by HMRC. This is the case if HMRC can prove that a business knew or should have known that their trading was linked to fraudulent transactions. This point was clearly proven as part of a recent investigation by the Insolvency Service. A mobile phone wholesaler has been disqualified for 15 years by the High Court. The High Court accepted that the director of the firm either knew or should have known about the connection of his transactions with an enormous £19m VAT fraud.

Interestingly, these events took place in 2006 so it took over 10 years for the offences to come to light and the resulting disqualification to be confirmed by the High Court.
