Takeaway bosses disqualified after submitting false tax returns

An uncle and nephew who ran a kebab takeaway in London have been banned from holding directorships for 14 years for suppressing takings.

An HMRC investigation found that Genc Ali Demir and his nephew Mehmet Demir had failed to record all of the takings at their kebab shop, Real Taste in Camden High Street, North West London, and had therefore under-declared £71,474 in VAT.

During May and June 2016, HMRC carried out further investigations which revealed the company ran a cash-only business and that the books and records it kept were inadequate.

At liquidation on 21st April 2017, HMRC stated that the company owed in excess of £297,000 for arrears of VAT, Corporation Tax and penalties.

The disqualifications mean that both Genc Ali Demir and Mehmet Demir cannot be directors of a company or be involved in the management of a company in any way for the duration of their disqualifications unless they have permission from court.

Lawrence Zussman, deputy head of investigations with the Insolvency Service, said: “These disqualifications send a clear message to other company directors that tax abuse of any kind, particularly when it comes to suppression of takings by directors, will not be tolerated.

“Much of the public service is funded by the correct amount of taxes being paid. By not declaring and paying the correct amount of taxes, the public has been deprived from receiving the services it deserves from the public sector.”
