Taxman sets up email address for barristers with concerns over tax irregularities

THE TAXMAN has set up a designated email address for barristers to come forward with concerns over irregularities with their tax affairs.

This follows the arrest of two barristers last month for VAT indiscretions. There has been disquiet among the barrister community about tax affairs and the designated email address is a result of this.

This is not similar to the Plumbers Safe Tax plan, which offered beneficial rates to plumbers who disclosed their irregularities. The barristers’ service simply allows practitioners to contact specialists within HM Revenue & Customs.

The email address is barrister.tax@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk.
