A Newcastle takeaway which serves Indian food has been fined more than £100,000 for tax default, according to the latest report from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
The Eastend Diner takeaway at Moulton Court, Blakelaw, Newcastle Upon Tyne, has been slapped with a penalty of £100,948.31. The fine is based for a total tax/duty of £144,211.92 from 6 April 2012 to 5 April 2019. The business is owned by Syed Foyash Ali.
According to the company website, it provides a range of curries and Indian Pizzas and also provide a delivery service up to 10 miles from the outlet. It claimed that its chefs are specialised in modern, fusion and authentic dishes.
