Publishing details of deliberate tax defaulters: Human Rights Act and Data Protection Act: Publication complies with HRA and DPA
Publishing the details of tax evaders is necessary in a democratic society. It is intended to deter people from avoiding their tax liability. It will therefore strengthen the economic well-being of the United Kingdom. Maximising tax revenue and encouraging compliance with the tax regime is a legitimate policy aim and has clear benefits to the whole of society.
In each individual case the detailed provisions of FA09/S94 ensure that
- we will only publish in the right circumstances, and
- only the necessary amount of information will be published.
