The United Kingdom tackles promoters of mass-marketed tax avoidance schemes

On 19 March 2020, Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) in the United Kingdom published a policy paper on its strategy to challenge and address promoters of tax avoidance schemes (Link).

The paper “Tackling promoters of mass-marketed tax avoidance schemes” outlines HMRC’s policy, operational, engagement and communications work to tackle those who promote mass-marketed tax avoidance schemes, through strengthening HMRC powers, disrupting their supply chain and deterring taxpayers from taking up the schemes

The initial guidance on tax avoidance including penalties, appeals and publishing details of enablers for defeated tax avoidance schemes was published on 30 April 2018 (Link-Blog).
