AML tax scheme

Introduction –AML tax scheme

If you have recently received a letter from HMRC in relation to the use of an AML tax scheme, then we recommend that you seek advice in relation to this letter as soon as possible.

As always, when you get a letter from HMRC timely advice and proper consideration of how to respond is crucial.

Take charge of your own enquiry

However, we would recommend that the advice that you seek should come from an independent practice or person.

Many tax scheme providers will have taken payment at some point for a ‘defence’ fund. Alternatively, you may be contributing a monthly amount in order for them to deal with any HMRC enquiries.

However, this may not be in your best interest.

The options being presented by the provider (or their associated tax partners) may be the options that primarily suit the provider rather than your own.

If you obtain independent advice then you will have control over how the enquiry is conducted from your side.

Of course, you will still not be able to control the speed and direction that HMRC take!
