“Even taxi drivers in U.K. have offshore accounts”

London: The net is closing in on an estimated 5,00,000 people in the United Kingdom for stashing away their black money in accounts in Switzerland, Channel Islands and the Caribbean.

According to a report in The Sunday Times, inspectors at Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) were “genuinely surprised” by how many middle-class people had secreted funds in havens. “This is not just about the very wealthy — we've even found chip shopowners, taxi drivers and landladies from Blackpool with offshore accounts,” an official of the HMRC was quoted as saying by the daily.

“We are not out to victimise these people ,but we are determined to ensure we receive what we are owed,” he said. — PTI
