Taxation: Evasion

Volume 707: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what measures they will introduce to curb tax evasion in the United Kingdom by non-national individuals and companies. [HL841]

The Government are committed to combating tax evasion. This applies both in relation to non-UK tax residents, where we have arrangements in place for exchanging information with other countries for their tax purposes, and in relation to non-UK nationals who have a tax liability in the United Kingdom. In the latter case, the UK tackles tax evasion as part of its overall approach to tackling tax evasion by UK tax residents. The Government will continue to keep the issue under review.
