Requirement To Correct: An evening with HMRC.

The Finance Bill 2017 introduced a ‘Requirement to Correct’ (RTC) legal obligation requiring all taxpayers with undeclared offshore tax liabilities (relating to income tax, capital gains tax or inheritance tax) to disclose those to HMRC by 30 September 2018.

12 September 2018

HMRC will later this year begin to receive extensive information in relation to offshore assets under the Common Reporting Standard sharing regime. If HMRC discovers offshore tax non-compliance post 30 September 2018, there will be crippling penalties of up to 200% of the tax plus 10% of the value of any related asset, as well as the reputational damage of being ‘named and shamed’ on HMRC’s public website.

Join us on Wednesday 12 September 2018 to gain an exclusive insight into HMRC’s views on the RTC obligation and the consequences for failing to correct any offshore tax non-compliance by 30 September 2018.

Our expert panel so far:
