Forum: HMRC Scheme Enquiries

For discussions relating to enquiry letters being sent out by HMRC.

  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: BIG GROUP

    Mod edit: Joining instructions. This started elsewhere but should be on its own. I have two takers so far. To clarify this BIG GROUP is ONE GROUP across ALL schemes. It does not impact action individuals may wish to take on their own or via other groups.

  5. Sticky Thread Sticky: Disappearing loans?

    It's a common feature of these threads that lenders have become difficult to find and engage with. We have recently had some experience in this arena. In most schemes that used loans, certainly until 2011, loans were advanced by the company acting as trustee for a trust. In some cases, the...

First, a number of you entered the various schemes available in the early 2000's for a number of reasons. Most of you had no background in...

  5. COP8 Question

    Hi Quick question. Tax year 05/06. Received the COP8 letter dated April 2008. Is it correct that HMRC only have 1 year after the filing deadline ( Jan 2007) in which to open a COP8? Thanks

  7. Unhappy Settlement Opportunity (SO) Loan Scheme pre 2011 with HMRC

    Hi All, I had the misfortune of being in a loan scheme pre 2011. I got flagged up a couple of years back. The company closed down (which owned the solution) but their legal representative started talking to HMRC collectively for all contractors who wanted to be represented. Now I have been...

    You would have thought not. However I hear the faintest whisper of a rumour that we may soon see some form of press release from our friends at HMRC suggesting that as part of their policing of the DOTAS regime, certain agency arrangements that create a tax advantage "should be" DOTAS...

  11. ToAA

    For ToAA to apply, Tax avoidance should be a motive. EBT has been proven legal before and Ranger's, Deutsche, UBS all have won. So if tax benefit to contractor is because of EBT Loans and NOT by Transferring asset abroad, how can tax avoidance be a motive and thus how should ToAA apply?...

    I've been caught up on this contractor loans affair as I worked for a company in the Isle of Man that actually provided this service. A stipulation of the contract was that I had to use their payment system. It's not as if I used them to avoid tax but obviously I regret it now :D. I just wanted...

  16. Agents receiving confirmations of schemes

    I remember some of the agents I worked through would not deal with offshore companies and any of the currency or lain schemes. Some did after they had clarification of the scheme. Now I am not sure if that would have come from the scheme provider, their tax counsel or you know who themselves. My...
