“Dundee Sheriff Court heard Brinner Sabando told HMRC that his firm, Dundee-based Fresca Ltd, had made a loss after spending almost £1.4m on stock and equipment. But tax officials found he had only paid out £250,000. Sheriff Elizabeth Munro jailed Sabando for 18 months. In total, the Ecuadorian national claimed £166,757.46 of VAT repayments for which he was not entitled.”
