Contractor Loans Settlement Opportunity 

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have announced today they are giving around 16,000 tax avoidance scheme users the opportunity to pay the tax they owe or risk facing bigger tax bills and heavy legal costs.

On average, each of the users of the contractor loan schemes covered by this settlement opportunity owes £11,000 a year in tax.

2014 has so far seen thousands of consumers fall victim to a copycat tax return website that masquerades as a legitimate government destination resulting in the users paying needless fees.

Official government services can, of course, be found by searching on the gov.uk website. The lookalike website, Taxreturngateway.com were careful to replicate the real thing (www.hmrc.gov.uk). 
Once visitors hit the website they were fooled into thinking it was the official site due to it sporting the same colours and key words, such as gateway. The site also enticed taxpayers by appearing at the top of internet searches when people tried to find the official site, this was because it paid Google and other search engines to advertise it ahead of the Revenue site.
