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.

  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: HMRC Enquiry letters on Loans from EBT and other schemes

  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...

  3. Political motivation for tax persecution

It's worth reading, simply to understand (with crystal clarity) the motivation behind the persecution we are experiencing. The article is titled...

  6. Ambulance chasers

    Quite a few of us have been through the mill with the stress of DOTAS registered EBTs. The new round of HMRC letters appear to relate to DOTAS and non DOTAS schemes. Whichever - there is an awful lot of them. When I cast my mind back to a similar flurry of HMRC activity relating to EBTs I...

  7. The HMRC PR Game

    Another terrible day at the office for HMRC's PR team. 100,000 tax payers getting revised tax codes will damage HMRC's credibility even further. Do we give them more powers or less? We certainly can't trust them to raid bank accounts when they chose. A few high profile Jimmy Carr's has helped...

  18. 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?...
