Finance Act 2014


1.These sections and the related Schedules introduce new legislation applying to certain promoters of tax avoidance schemes. In broad outline, the provisions define promoters of avoidance schemes, identify when they have triggered “threshold” conditions targeting specified behaviours, and provide for a “conduct” notice to be applied to these promoters.  Those who fail to comply with a conduct notice may be issued with a “monitoring” notice, which requires pre-approval by a Tribunal.  Names of promoters subject to a monitoring notice will be published by HMRC, including details of how the conduct notice was breached, and the promoter will be required to publish its monitored status to clients.  Information requirements will apply to monitored promoters, and intermediaries and clients of monitored promoters.
