Government announces new measures to block tax avoidance involving offshore employment intermediaries – HM Treasury.

I found this yesterday and posted it to my blog. I have received a further alert about it via LexisNexis (@LexisNexisUK) today so am reposting for those of you who missed it first time around.

As one of my clients said yesterday when we were discussing it, the positive is that HMRC are going to consult before making the changes the Government believes are necessary rather than riding roughshod over current legislation as they normally do.

I think this is one to watch, the effect is likely to be widespread with many industry sectors being affected – many high earners arrange their employment income through the structures now under review.
