Parliamentary debates; HMRC


The Public Accounts Committee are conducting an inquiry into high net worth individuals (HNWIs) and how HMRC deals with them. HMRC’s High Net Worth Unit raised £416m from its compliance work with this group in 2015–16 according to a report by the National Audit Office (NAO). 

This is the summary of the first meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Responsible Tax (the APPG), excluding its AGM, since it received submissions on its Inquiry into public confidence in HMRC’s capability to collect tax fairly and effectively.  This is the second work stream of the APPG (following one on BEPS). This includes looking at customer service experience and how HMRC fights tax avoidance and evasion.
