Beware of Tax Specialists Promoting Dubious Schemes

There’s an old saying that ‘if something looks too good to be true, it probably is’. It should also serve as a reminder that you should beware of tax specialists promoting dubious schemes.

HMRC use a variety of different methods to identify and put an end to tax avoidance, whether that’s individuals or the promoters of more complex schemes.

If you are looking for a tax specialist and advice about how to reduce the liabilities of your business, it’s something that you should be aware of.

Beware of Tax Specialists Promoting Dubious Schemes

Dubious schemes and misleading claims can, of course, take many different forms including misleading by omission.

For example advisors omitting to tell potential clients about the many tools and methods that HMRC employ to crack down on tax avoidance schemes. The very tax avoidance schemes which they are promoting and encouraging you to join.

HMRC has recently been successful with claims taken to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in relation to such ‘misleading by omission’ advertising by the promoters of tax avoidance schemes.

It just goes to show to HMRC do assess the websites of advisors and professionals when making a judgement about their professional standards – and you should too.
