Tax Amnesty - here we go again!

According to the Sunday Times HM Revenue & Customs are planning another go at trying to persuade those with undeclared overseas bank accounts to come forward. This time they are not expected to be as generous as the first time and in some cases they will be tough. Dave Hartnett, the acting Chairman of HMRC is quoted as saying:

“Some people will go to jail — I have no doubt about that, for example where they have lied to us during a previous investigation. We do not tolerate that at all.”

There are no details as yet of the mechanics of the new arrangements but if you have something you think should be disclosed you should contact your professional adviser before HMRC contact you.
