Taxman closes another tax avoidance scheme

HMRC Revenue & Customs announced yesterday that they are taking steps to close a “highly contrived” tax avoidance scheme. The arrangements involve complex structures including both companies and trusts (possibly offshore). Some details can be found on the HMRC website and a ministerial statement will be made in Parliament today.

Maybe this will help plug the shortfall in tax receipts discussed in The Times on Saturday. The article indicates that HMRC are stepping up there investigations into Self Assessment Tax returns. The returns for the year to 5 April 2009, if not already filed, are due by the end of the month.
