Alcohol duty fraud costs the UK taxpayer approximately £1.3 billion in lost revenue per year, and damages the livelihood of legitimate businesses.
The Joint Alcohol Anti-Fraud Taskforce (JAAT) brings stakeholders from the alcohol sector and law enforcement authorities together to tackle this shared problem. Its specific objectives are to:
gain a greater mutual understanding of the nature and scale of alcohol fraud
improve sharing of information and intelligence
improve collaboration between the alcohol industry and authorities on other issues such as communication and education
explore how technology could assist with tackling fraud
This report outlines the key achievements of the JAAT in its first year, from 2014 to 2015.
