HMRC has analysed all of the material that has been made publicly available, and continues to work with partners in the UK, and overseas, on tackling offshore evasion activity.

The work of the Panama Papers Taskforce has led to civil and criminal investigations into 66 individuals for suspected tax evasion, including high net worth individuals. As part of this HMRC has made four arrests; and carried out six interviews under caution.
