In one of the four webinars inclusive in 2015 Private Client Section membership, tax manager Lisa Vanderheide delivers practical insights in how to deal effectively with an HMRC investigation.  Catch up again now.

HMRC is to be given £800m of extra funding over the next five years to combat tax evasion and non-compliance as part of a drive to raise £7.2bn. In addition to a prosecution push, HMRC’s ‘name and shame lists will be widened to include serial users of failed tax avoidance schemes. The lines between tax evasion and tax avoidance being continuously blurred, and rules change often. 

Topics to be covered include:

• the closure of the LDF;
• disguised remuneration;
• HMRC’s new approach;
• popular tax schemes which are now seen as tax avoidance – what you should tell your clients;
• compliance; and
• common reporting.
