    Default Six arrested in connection with scheme to dodge tax avoidance crackdown

    Six people have been arrested in connection with a scheme promising to sidestep a controversial tax avoidance crackdown.

    Telegraph Money has previously warned against dubious arrangements promising to sidestep the loan charge, which has been levied on contractors who used so-called disguised remuneration schemes dating back 20 years.

    The 50,000 affected people face huge bills for unpaid tax, in some cases well over £100,000, and a number of schemes have sprung up promising to avoid the charge – often by artificially repaying any outstanding loans. Experts have warned that use of such schemes could lead to further penalties.

    Fifty officers from HM Revenue & Customs swooped in two raids in the past week and searched premises in London, Guildford, Stevenage, Stratford-upon-Avon and Kent. Six people have been arrested on suspicion of cheating the public revenue and committing fraud by false representation.

    The six arrested were a man from Guildford, 54, a man from Stevenage, 58, a man from Stratford, 50, a man from south London, 78, a woman from Tonbridge, 45, and a 50-year-old man from Sevenoaks in Kent. All have been released pending further investigation.

    Fraudsters using Fiat?!
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Duct tape holds the universe together. In quantum chromodynamics it's known as the strong force. You get it in different colours, but metallic grey is best.

    I would love to know the name of the scheme(s).

    About time HMRC started using their enormous powers properly.
