Graham Dickinson admits £85,000 income tax scam

A self-employed health and safety advisor has admitted failing to pay income tax totalling £85,000.

Graham Dickinson, 41, failed to make payments between April 2008 and July 2012 while carrying out work around the world for four recruitment agencies.

He was detained at Glasgow Airport following an investigation by HM Revenue and Customs.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, sentence on Dickinson was deferred until a later date and his bail was continued.

The court heard that Dickinson, from Glasgow, plans to pay £25,000 of the tax within the next month and afterwards repay £8,000 per month.
