Wealth investigations yield record tax takeTaxes collected from investigations of wealthy individuals has reached a record high. New research from Pinsent Masons shows HMRC's yield from probes into wealthy individuals jumped 58% to a record £1.9bn in 2018/19. Investigations in the wake of the Panama Papers, which involved an unprecedented data leak revealing new information about secretive offshore tax regimes, yielded an extra £190m alone.
