When under investigation from HMRC, it does not immediately mean they have found you to have been part of a specific tax avoidance scheme, only that you are being checked. There are several tax avoidance schemes that an individual can be held accountable for, relating to several different taxation sections. Share Loss Relief Schemes, Employee Benefit Trusts, Stamp Duty Schemes, Film Partnership Schemes, Pension Schemes, and Inheritance Tax Schemes, all fall under the bracket of tax avoidance as well as subsections associated with the various schemes. HMRC’s anti-avoidance group will attempt to close any loopholes being used to exploit tax avoidance, dependant on which type of scheme is being used.
There are many serious repercussions to any individual found using a tax avoidance scheme. Being found guilty of participating in a tax avoidance scheme can potentially lead to criminal prosecution and having to serve a prison sentence. With the complexities surrounding tax avoidance and the process of the COP 8 investigation, having our professional tax accountant examine your returns or offer advice from the earliest opportunity can be crucial to a successful outcome.
It’s impossible to praise Tax Accountants too highly! They aren’t sales driven and deliver a professional quality service. They offer a tailored and bespoke service that matches individual needs. 100% would recommend them.
Tax Accountants called me shortly after I had set up a company just as I was looking for an account. They asked a few questions and my intentions and they explained about tax planning saving me the time of blindly fishing around in the dark.
Fantastic service, my highly specific needs were listened to and understood, and I was put in contact with a relevant specialist. Couldn’t have asked for any better. I would recommend to anyone looking for fast and reliable service.
