Tax evaders in sights

LONDON: Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne is to use the budget he unveils to announce a crackdown on the use of personal-service companies to avoid taxes.

The measures are to require people hired off-payroll to pay employment taxes that are due, according to a government official briefed on the matter.

The measure is to apply across the public sector, including departments, police, local authorities, the National Health Service, education establishments. The plan also would cover public corporations such as the BBC, Channel 4, Transport for London, the Bank of England and Network Rail.
