Following on from my article about Donald Toon's Economia quoted comments on "avoidance" it seems that, according to HMRC, Toon was misrepresented by The Times from where Economia sourced the quote.
As per a Tweet sent to me moments ago by Helen Roxburgh of Economia:
HMRC contend that Toon was misrepresented, and was referring to evasion not avoidance. I wonder why HMRC didn't rush to correct the error themselves, instead of being prodded to do so by the media that reported it?
"@ken_frost FYI, I heard back from HMRC - they said it was a misrepresentation by the Times. Have changed our story accordingly."
Tax does have to be taxing.
