Four names added to HMRC’s tax avoidance list.

04 August 2022

Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has added 4 companies to a list of tax avoidance scheme promoters, enablers and suppliers.

The additions added were:

  • Countrywide Partners Limited (CPL)
  • Industria PAYE Limited (IPL)
  • Pure Invoicing Limited (PIL)
  • U R Group Limited (URGL)

The schemes added paid users in 2 separate payments. The first being an element at or near National Minimum Wage, taxed via PAYE, and the second as a loan or grant agreement, not taxed.

It is clear HMRC is ramping up activity in this area. Any individual or company that suspects tax avoidance schemes are being used or promoted is encouraged to contact HMRC.

HMRC is also clear that this is not a complete list of tax avoidance schemes and any absence from their published list did not mean a scheme is approved by them.
