Tax avoidance involving profit fragmentation - Law Society response

The Law Society’s Income Tax Committee has responded to HMRC’s consultation on tax avoidance involving profit fragmentation.

The consultation proposes that additional anti-avoidance legislation be introduced in the 2018/19 Finance Bill.

Given the length and complexity of the UK tax code, the Law Society urges the government not to add to it - unless there is a clear need to do so. In our view, additional anti-avoidance legislation is not needed in this case.
