Contractor avoidance campaign

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, HM Revenue and Customs should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

HMRC has recently confirmed that 20,919 requests for settlement have been made under the terms announced on 7th November 2017. Thank you for this information.

I would now request the following.

1. How many of those 20,919 requests are unique? (We are aware that some taxpayers have made multiple requests).

2. What percentage of those under enquiry for alleged avoidance whilst working as a contractor, does the above figure represent?

3. What percentage of those expected to be in receipt of a 2019 loan charge does the above figure represent?

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Graham Webber on behalf of FOI Central Team, HM Revenue and Customs

Dear Mr Webber,

Freedom of Information Act 2000 Acknowledgement

Thank you for your communication of 2nd July which has been passed to
HMRC's Freedom of Information Team.

We have allocated the above reference which you should quote if you need
to contact us.

The Team will arrange for a reply to be sent to you which will either
comply with HMRC's obligations under Freedom of Information Act or, if we
think it's an enquiry that we don't need to address under the terms of the
Act, let you know why. If it is the latter we will, if possible, pass it
on to a more appropriate part of the Department for answer.

Yours sincerely

HMRC Freedom of Information Act Team on behalf of FOI Central Team, HM Revenue and Customs
