HMRC has recently released warnings to returning NHS workers regarding tax schemes currently being offered to some.
Workers returning to the NHS to assist with the current COVID-19 crisis are, in some cases, being offered access to tax avoidance schemes, and HMRC is strongly warning against joining any such scheme.
How to tell if you have been offered a tax scam
There are several ways for you to tell if a scheme you have been offered is a tax avoidance scam.
Contact Samera directly and we can advise on whether a tax scheme you have been offered is legitimate, or an avoidance scam.
HMRC have guidance on their website to help you understand what these scams look like: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/tax-avoidance-promoters-targeting-returning-nhs-workers-spotlight-54
