HMRC is encouraging all Scottish Wholesale Association members to report any concerns they have regarding alcohol fraud or dishonest practices within the industry.

Kate Salmon, SWA executive director, said: "Only by reporting our concerns and suspicions will we help reduce this type of crime and I would urge all of you to use HMRC's 'notifications' email address for this purpose. We have an assurance from HRMC that all emails will receive a response so please take advantage of it."
