PwC to advise clients to take amnesty offer

Undisclosed offshore bank accounts will be discovered says firm

PwC says it will advise its clients to take
advantage of the one-off tax amnesty recently announced by
HM Revenue & Customs.

The one-off offshore disclosure facility has been set up to enable people who
have undisclosed offshore bank accounts to make them known voluntarily in return
for reduced penalties.

Stephen
Camm
, tax partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, who advises taxpayers to use
this opportunity to ensure their tax affairs are in order, said: ‘Taxpayers need
to understand that if they have an undisclosed offshore bank account, it will be
discovered.

‘This opportunity for reduced penalties is very unlikely to be repeated. It
is a chance for taxpayers to avoid much higher penalties than the fixed 10%
penalty being sought here.’
