HMRC launched in April of this year a criminal and civil “Taskforce” in order to investigate the 11.5 million documents leaked from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca.

On 8 November 2016, the government reported that more than 30 individuals and companies are now under active investigation for criminal or serious civil offences linked to tax fraud and financial wrongdoing and that hundreds more are under detailed review.
