    Default Tax Scheme Promoters Resist Search Warrant

    The underlying issues relate to tax avoidance schemes involving the conversion of remuneration into loans, which the promoters erroneously believed to be legal when they offered them to clients. The mastermind behind the scheme in question was Paul Baxendale-Walker (aka Paul Chaplin).

    The underlying transactions featured an initial attempt to reclassify remuneration as a loan, enhanced by attempts to ensure that this would remain effective after the introduction of the disguised remuneration loan charge on 5 April 2019. The case turned on whether Judge HHJ Mairs had validly issued a warrant allowing HMRC to search premises and obtain specific documents.
