There are no criminal offences specific to the promotion of mass marketed tax avoidance schemes, but HMRC may conduct a criminal investigation into an individual’s actions when, for example, reliance is placed on a false or altered document, or if material facts are misrepresented. For example, last month six individuals were arrested on suspicion of promoting fraudulent loan charge arrangements.</p><p> </p><p>Since the formation of HMRC’s Fraud Investigation Service on 1 April 2016, more than 20 individuals have been convicted for offences relating to arrangements which have been promoted and marketed as tax avoidance schemes, resulting in over 100 years custodial sentences. A significant number of avoidance scheme promoters are currently under criminal investigation by HMRC.</p>
