The chancellor has announced during his Autumn Statement that the taxman will use a further £77m towards fighting tax avoidance.
Further cuts to departmental budgets, also announced by George Osborne today, will not affect HM Revenue & Customs.
It is unclear whether the £77m is new funding or a reallocation of current HMRC resources.
He has also announced that “hundreds of millions of pounds” of tax avoidance loopholes will also be closed, as announced in this Statement’s documentation.
