The government has taken significant steps to tackle the promoters of tax avoidance schemes. It introduced the Promoters of Tax Avoidance Schemes (POTAS) regime in Budget 2013 to tackle high-risk promoters, and Finance Bill 2017-2019 goes further by introducing a new penalty on the enablers of tax avoidance.
