Tax Evasion Training

The Criminal Finances Act (2017) is set to dramatically increase standards for compliance within global corporations. Amongst other measures, the new legislation will make organisations criminally liable if they do not prevent their employees (and others working on their behalf) from facilitating tax evasion. Furthermore, the directives of the Act apply where individuals are found guilty of evading taxes overseas too.

It is vital employees are aware of the issue of tax evasion and are empowered to report it where necessary. It protects the company’s reputation and that as individuals, as well as being the right thing to do.

Tax evasion is an illegal activity involving individuals or businesses who deliberately do not declare income or account for what they owe in tax. It includes the hidden economy which is when individuals or businesses hide taxable activity from HMRC completely. In 2017-18, the tax gap in the UK was estimated to be around £35billion, which is 5.6% of tax liabilities.

The Criminal Finances Act 2017 came into effect on 30 September 2017 and is the law that deals with the corporate offence of failure to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion. The HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) takes direct action against those who use tax evasion schemes and collecting tax up-front from avoidance schemes.

Tax avoidance are the legal measures employed to use the tax regime to pay lower rate of tax than owed. While tax evasion is the illegal and involves the steps taken to avoid paying tax all together by not declaring income to the authorities.
