star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to tackle avoidance, evasion and non-compliance at all levels and has introduced over 100 measures since 2010 protecting over £175 billion in tax revenues. Where tax avoidance is suspected HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) investigates and challenges those arrangements, through litigation if necessary.</p><p>HMRC wins around 90% of avoidance cases taken to litigation and has protected over £6.8 billion of tax in the last three years, with many more people settling their tax affairs before reaching this stage. The marketplace for tax avoidance has shrunk in the past 4 years seeing the number of new schemes disclosed under the Disclosure of Tax Avoidance Schemes (DOTAS) regime fall by 95% since 2005/06.</p><p>Litigation outcomes and DOTAS disclosures statistics are available on GOV.UK.</p> more like this
