Loan Charge Promotors of Disguised Remuneration / Loan Schemes

We're waiting for Jamie to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

In a letter dated July 2018 from HMRC it states "We also pursue those who promote or enable schemes that attempt to avoid tax . We have a range of powers to discourage promoting or enabling avoidance, including penalty regimes which can impose penalties unto £1m or the whole of the fees earned for attempting to enable avoidance. We are also reporting promotors to the Advertising and Standards Agency and professional bodies, and opening criminal investigations where appropriate. Promotors of tax avoidance schemes have been prosecuted, leading to criminal and jail terms"

Please let me know...

1) How many criminal investigations against promotors are:
a) Currently Open
b) Closed with a Success
c) Failed in Court and still being pursued
d) Failed in Court and closed without success
e) How many promotors have been jailed

2) Who are the professional bodies you are reporting them to other than the ASA

3) Which of these professional bodies are regulated

Yours faithfully

James Mcguigan

Thank you for your communication of 26th December 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

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
