Tax avoidance — don’t get caught out

HMRC’s ‘Tax avoidance - don’t get caught out’ campaign helps contractors to spot the signs of tax avoidance, understand the financial risks and check their pay arrangements to prevent an unexpected tax bill.

A ‘contractor’ is someone who provides services to clients that do not directly engage them. This may be through an ‘umbrella company’, an agency, a partnership, or their own company, such as a Personal Service Company. This applies to employed and self-employed individuals.

To support your clients, we ask that you keep sharing the campaign messages and signpost them to:

  • Tanya and Duncan’s personal stories

  • payslip guide and interactive contract risk checker

  • how to spot the signs of tax avoidance and what it’s like to work through an umbrella company guides

  • how to report or get help to leave a scheme

  • new powers to name tax avoidance schemes and their promoters to help protect and warn the public not to get caught up in tax avoidance.

We appreciate your support and want to work with you to prevent your clients from getting caught out by tax avoidance.
