EBT Contractors given until 31st December 2011 to come clean
The Permanent Secretary of the HM Revenue & Customs, Dave Hartnett, said that “This approach to customers gives them the opportunity to discuss their cases with us and work in partnership to establish how the facts of their case fit within the proposals. If EBT users do not respond by 31 December 2011, HMRC will assume that they are not interested in engaging with them and will look to progress enquiries formally.”
“HMRC will continue to enquire into open EBT cases and may open further enquiries during this period including seeking further information. Where HMRC is unable to agree settlement proposals with employers or companies then they will, as appropriate, continue to progress cases within the terms of the published Litigation and Settlement Strategy, and the new legislation will apply to continuing EBTs, and funds held in them.”
