Hi Richie claims9988
Thanks for your question
A business can only be audited through request of the business - however you have the right to report this to HMRC, as this is tax evasion on behalf of the employer and each of the employees - and HMRC will be interested that tax and National Insurance are not being paid over appropriately - this may remedy the position long term , but in honesty may not help you short term with your CSA position.
See link here to advise HMRC of your concerns of the tax evasion - taking some steps now to help you long term is worthwhile- but its only fair to advise this will not produce a short term outcome
