For periods after 1 April 2010, in addition to recovering any tax, interest and penalty HMRC can also publish the details of people or companies that have deliberately evaded more than £25,000. In the past, HMRC could only publish details in criminal cases.
HMRC has stated that they will not publish details where a full disclosure has been made, either unprompted or immediately when challenged, and provided the taxpayer provides full co-operation throughout the HMRC enquiry.
It is possible that publication could include the person's name, address, nature of business, period covered by the evasion, amount of evaded tax and the penalty for that evasion. Details are published on a quarterly basis on HMRC's website.
