We believe Uber has broken the law by failing to charge VAT on the taxi services it offers. The sums involved are enormous – perhaps a quarter of a billion pounds a year of VAT alone. And we don’t have confidence the tax man will collect that tax itself. So we have gone after Uber, and HMRC, ourselves.
We have issued proceedings in the High Court, supported by your pledges to the Uber Case crowdfund, and the case continues to develop.
See below for the latest and previous updates to the case.
