Tax planning will not pay

Posted on

Accountancy Age reports:

The taxman will no longer negotiate settlements with taxpayers who use tax planning that is challenged in court.

HM Revenue & Customs is to adopt a no compromise stance in cases where it believes it has a strong case. In such cases HMRC will not settle for anything less than 100p in the pound.

Quite right too. Abusive tax planning must not be allowed to pay.

I note E & Y do not agree.
