HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is conducting a full review of the UK’s disclosure regimes – the Disclosure of Tax Avoidance Schemes (DOTAS) regime and the VAT Disclosure Regime.
This review will consider the success of the regimes since their introduction in 2004, how they’re operating against policy objectives, levels of compliance with the regimes and the burden they place both on taxpayers and HMRC.
HMRC is due to complete the review by 31 March 2014.
How you can help
HMRC is asking anyone with experience of either DOTAS or the VAT Disclosure Regime to help them by answering a short questionnaire on the regimes. Your experiences are important in helping HMRC form a more complete, objective view of the disclosure regimes.
All responses to questionnaires will be anonymised and held confidentially. Questions do not relate to specific discloseable schemes or arrangements. Responses will be analysed collectively and information provided will not be used by HMRC beyond the scope of this review, or to identify individual promoters or users.
