Seven Scottish companies fined, named and shamed for unpaid taxes – see the full list

SEVEN Scottish businesses have been fined a total of over £310,000 for failing to pay the correct amount of tax.

HMRC has released its latest list of willful tax defaulters, which reveals businesses and business owners who have had to pay financial penalties after failing to comply with their tax obligations.

The Deliberate Defaulters Scheme triggers when a person or business has committed at least one willful default over £25,000.

The department publishes the full list regularly, with updates every three months. The information is then deleted after one year. The policy is known as “naming and shaming”.
