Budget 2017 - PwC comments on penalties for enablers of defeated tax avoidance
Published at 14:47 PM on 08 March 2017
Stella Amiss, tax partner at PwC, said:
"In his speech the Chancellor reiterated his commitment to introducing a new penalty for enablers of defeated tax avoidance. The Government has worked to ensure there is greater clarity in its proposals and that they are appropriately targeted and proportionate. The Government recognises taxpayers need to access tax advice that helps them understand and comply with tax rules.
"It is good to see the Government’s continued commitment to consulting on these proposals as there are a number of points of detail that will need to be clarified."
