Harris & Co accountants in Northampton have reviewed HM Revenue and Customs’ recent acquisition of extra tax from the UK’s wealthiest taxpayers.
What Does The High Net Worth Unit Do?
HMRC have announced that their High Net Worth Unit, which deals with the tax affairs of 5,800 people with assets in excess of £20m, increased its yield from tax enquiries by 10% in 2012/13 to £220m.
Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, David Gauke, said:
‘HMRC’s High Net Worth Unit provides the specialist attention they require in ensuring the wealthy pay the tax they owe. This Government has reinvested almost £1 billion in HMRC and expects them to deliver almost £22 billion in 2014/15.’
‘Since 2010, the unit has raised £582 million, increasing its revenue year on year which, at a time when the Government is focused on reducing the deficit, is delivering real results for the country.’
