Tax advisers beware – avoidance is the new evasion
United Kingdom | 11 September 2020

The government and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs have been pledging to clamp down on enablers and promoters of aggressive tax avoidance strategies for years. In recent times, it has been hard to keep up with the plethora of measures and legislation brought in to stop these unscrupulous advisers.

United Kingdom | 16 August 2019

Critical to such an assessment is whether the corporate has provided sufficient information about its operations, including making witnesses available and disclosing the details of any internal investigations.
