Preventing the Facilitation of Tax Evasion Refresher Course

Tax laws don't just apply to those who deal with calculating or managing taxes. They apply to everyone. The UK Criminal Finances Act 2017 made it a criminal offence to facilitate tax evasion by anyone in the UK or abroad.

Failure to prevent tax evasion is a strict liability offence. This means that a company can be liable even if didn't sanction the tax evasion or have knowledge of the activity taking place.
