HMRC warning on legal tax scheme

HMRC warning on legal tax scheme

29 November 2012

HMRC has sent out a ‘warning shot’ to users of a legal tax avoidance scheme, encouraging them to leave before being challenged for tax dodging.

The letters, distributed to 1,500 individuals, are seen as a pre-emptive strike by the taxman prior to a legal challenge of the unnamed scheme in court.

This is the first time HMRC has sent out correspondence concerning a currently legal scheme, and they hope that a potentially lengthy and costly legal battle can be avoided by the users choosing to opt out voluntarily.
