In yesterday's Budget Rishi Sunak has pledged extra funding to support HM Revenue & Custom's crackdown on tax avoidance, which the chancellor said would create an additional £4.4bn in revenue over the next five years.
Rishi Sunak said funds created by an upcoming "clampdown" on tax "avoidance, evasion and non-compliance" would be funnelled towards the NHS.
Mr Sunak said:
"I am announcing a package of measures today to clampdown on aggressive tax avoidance, evasion and non-compliance including extra funding for HMRC to secure £4.4bn of additional revenue."Seemingly the proposal will see 1,300 staff added to operational teams within HMRC, intended to improve its compliance work and debt collection capabilities.
