The engagement is designed to tackle undervaluation fraud, including online VAT fraud, with the help of the Chinese authorities. This has included a memorandum of understanding, set up in 2018, leading to a joint working group and a series of commodity-focused exercises.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, HMRC’s primary focus in tackling the VAT issue has been with the online marketplaces through which those sellers operate, as this has proven to be an effective way of improving their compliance.
