The Government is committed to tackling tax evasion and avoidance in order to ensure that everyone pays the right tax at the right time. Tax evasion and avoidance damage the ability of the tax system to deliver its objectives, and impose additional costs on all taxpayers. HMRC are determined to keep up the pressure on the small minority of people who attempt to break or bend the rules.

HMRC have a robust strategy in place to tackle evasion and avoidance, and since 2010 HMRC have secured more than £220 billion in tax that would have otherwise gone unpaid.
