    That would be a prime candidate for the GAAR. Penalty up to 60%.

    LCAG have done a brilliant job. And I have high hopes for the JR.

    Agreed though - its a high barrier to get over.

    Why do you have high hopes? I have not seen the detailed arguments but JRs on retrospective tax from a human rights perspective are never successful. There is nothing that prevents retrospective tax law been applied in any UK/European court.
    MPs forcing change are the only hope in my view and this is only a slightly higher chance than above as there are maybe 200 MPs so far that support v 430 MPs who dont.

    I hope they've got something other than HR.

    I only have high hopes from what I have heard on the JR. I agree though its a high hurdle to cross.

    Re MPs. Lets say 430 MPs did support LCAG. That would not be enough. To vote against Treasury is vote against the government. MPs will not force a GE on this.
