Ilford restaurant named and shamed for owing more than £70k worth of taxes
An Ilford restaurant has been named and shamed in a list of tax cheats published on the HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) website this week.
Caribbean Foods and Cuisine Ltd, based in Chapel Road, is thought to owe £75,265 worth of taxes, and a further £71,501 in penalties, from between April and September 2011.
Publishing the names of deliberate tax defaulters is part of HMRC’s approach to combating tax evasion and non-compliance.
It is aimed at ensuring everyone pays their fair share, creates a level playing field for honest people and businesses, and cracks down on the minority who seek to evade tax.
HMRC’s Jennie Granger, director general for enforcement and compliance, said: “The majority of people pay the tax that is due but there is a small minority of people who try to evade their responsibilities.

“Publishing these names encourages others to get back on track by making a full and prompt disclosure and cooperate with HMRC to avoid being named – all the named defaulters have exhausted the appeals process. So, we will continue to publish the names of tax cheats every quarter.”
The restaurant was approached for comment but did not respond in time for The Recorder’s deadline.
