HMRC names another 3 tax-avoidance schemes and promoters


HMRC shared another three companies last week (18th August), on their ‘named tax avoidance schemes, promoters, enablers and suppliers’ list.


The companies named were:


The main theme of the schemes being used is the worker receives two payments, of which the second has not been taxed under PAYE, disguised as an advance.

All three companies are still active.

HMRC has now published the details of 14 tax avoidance schemes and their promoters and will continue to add to this list.

The government’s website states:

This is not a complete list of all tax avoidance schemes currently being marketed or a complete list of all promoters, enablers, and suppliers. HMRC recommends steering clear of all avoidance schemes.

HMRC’s Tax Avoidance – Don’t Get Caught Out campaign offers a range of tools to customers to help them steer clear of avoidance schemes, such as the interactive risk checkerpayslip guidance, and case studies demonstrating the risks of becoming involved in a tax avoidance scheme and the warning signs customers should look out for.
