Disguised Remuneration – Avoidance

HMRC has updated the payment terms for settlement of disguised remuneration avoidance cases, which can be found on GOV.UK

Disguised remuneration tax avoidance schemes claim to avoid the need to pay Income Tax and National Insurance contributions. They normally involve a loan or other payment from a third-party which is unlikely to ever be repaid.

These schemes are used by employers and individuals. If they’re used by contractors, they’re often known as contractor loans.

If you’re in a disguised remuneration scheme, you should settle your tax affairs as soon as possible. If you don’t, the new loan charge announced at Budget 2016 will apply to all disguised remuneration loans outstanding on 5 April 2019.
