HMRC is taking robust action in response to avoidance involving the abuse of Employment Allowance (EA), including legislative change and targeted compliance activity against those who abuse the allowance. Action under Disclosure of Tax Avoidance Schemes (DOTAS) is only one of a range of actions available. HMRC will also consider criminal prosecution where appropriate.
