TAX AVOIDANCE OR TAX PLANNING?

“Any one may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the treasury.”

Judge Learned Hand,
Helvering v. Gregory, 69 F.2d 809, 810-11 (2d Cir.1934).

Contrast this with Her
Majesty’s Revenue and
Customs and their view
of tax avoidance:

“Tax avoidance involves bending the rules of the tax system to gain a tax advantage that Parliament never intended. It involves operating within the letter, but not the spirit, of the law.”

Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs

In simple terms, there are tax avoidance practices that are condoned by parliament such as employer
pension payments. However there are also tax avoidance schemes that whilst legal are
not condoned by parliament and these are referred to as “aggressive tax avoidance.” This is a grey area.

If you are unsure if you have used aggressive schemes in the past,
please contact Ten Forward for a professional review.

How can you save tax and reconcile the issues of tax avoidance?

The answer is “Tax planning.” Being able to take advantage of the opportunities to minimise your tax bill in a way that is encouraged by parliament. Effective tax planning will mean more money in your pocket, either for investing or for spending.

You can have your cake and eat it: minimise tax and avoid increasing tax risk.
