UK tax body expands probe into GVC's former Turkish gambling unit

This post was originally published on this site

The probe by the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) began late last year and was then directed at former third-party suppliers over processing of payments at the business GVC disposed off in December 2017, the company said.

GVC, whose long-time Chief Executive Officer Kenny Alexander stepped down last week, said that it was cooperating with the HMRC on the investigation, but was “disappointed by the lack of clarity” over the scope of the investigation.

It said that HMRC had made a reference to section 7 of the Bribery Act 2010, but the company did not have any further details.

The HMRC could not be immediately reached for comment outside of business hours.
