In the 2018-19 Budget, the Government announced that it will conduct a review of existing criminal offences, and civil and administrative penalties for black economy activity. As part of this process, the Government is consulting stakeholders on how it could implement the Black Economy Taskforce recommendation to introduce a modern offences regime to tackle the black economy (see Final Report).
This consultation discusses how a targeted, stronger and more visible approach to enforcement can be implemented to target black economy activities. Views are sought on a number of proposed amendments to black economy offences, penalties and streamlining prosecution processes.
