HMRCVAT rule-breakers have until 31 December 2011 to complete the VAT registration process under a time-limited HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) campaign. 

In July this year, HMRC launched its VAT Initiative in which rule-breakers were offered a special plan to put right their tax affairs. The chance to participate, and be guaranteed the conditions contained in the plan, ended on 30 September 2011.
 
 
Since the opportunity ended, HMRC has been identifying those who did not come forward.  Substantially higher penalties and even criminal prosecution could follow.
