The Government estimates that £3.2 billion from the loan charge policy will be collected from scheme users who can be employers or individuals. 75% of the estimated amount is expected from employers and 25% from individuals.
Since the announcement of the 2019 loan charge at Budget 2016, HMRC has agreed settlements on disguised remuneration schemes with employers and individuals of over 650 million pounds. More than 90% of this amount was collected from employers, with less than 10% from individuals. If scheme users repay the loan or agree a settlement for the tax that they owe with HMRC, they will not face the charge.
Providers or promoters of tax avoidance schemes are not liable for the loan charge unless they themselves have used arrangements caught by the legislation. HMRC pursues those who promote or enable tax avoidance schemes to ensure that nobody profits from selling avoidance.
