An HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) crackdown has seen warning letters sent out to 2,500 doctors and dentists who are being targeted as probable tax dodgers. The letters will tell them they must pay within 21 days or face possible prosecution.

These threats are part of HMRC's efforts to recover unpaid tax owed by various professions and trades.
