Since that date, existing schemes have been unwound and there have been no further known iterations of these schemes. The measure has therefore been successful in protecting revenues, but it is not possible to say how much would otherwise have been lost.</p> more like this

The success of the GAAR should not be measured by how much it is expected to raise or the number of times the rule has been invoked.</p><p> </p><p>The principle purpose of the GAAR is to deter taxpayers from entering into abusive tax arrangements in the first place, and initial evidence suggests that GAAR is having this effect. Before HMRC can use the GAAR, it must first refer the case to the GAAR Advisory Panel, an external body separate to HMRC. To date the GAAR Advisory Panel has agreed with HMRC’s view on all cases referred to them. Their opinions are published on GOV.UK.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Disguised Remuneration (DR) schemes are contrived arrangements that pay loans in place of ordinary remuneration with the sole purpose of avoiding income tax and National Insurance contributions.</p><p> </p><p>The Government introduced legislation in 2011 to target arrangements intended to disguise remuneration, which were forecast to raise £3.8bn. At Budget 2016, the Government announced a package of changes, including the charge on disguised remuneration (DR) loans, which are estimated to raise £3.2 billion for the Exchequer by 2021. Further information can be found in the ‘Disguised remuneration: further update’ policy paper, published on 22 November 2017: <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/disguised-remuneration-further-update/disguised-remuneration-further-update" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/disguised-remuneration-further-update/disguised-remuneration-further-update</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Since the announcement of the charge on DR loans, HMRC has agreed settlements on disguised remuneration schemes with employers and individuals of over 650 million pounds. More than 90% of this amount was collected from employers, with less than 10% from individuals. If scheme users repay the loan or agree a settlement for the tax that they owe with HMRC, they will not face the charge.</p>
