Following an agreement between HM Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) and the Government of Guernsey, HMRC have agreed to make available a disclosure facility – the “GDF”.
The GDF is available from 6 April 2013 until 30 September 2016 and has been introduced to help UK taxpayers with investments in Guernsey to apply the terms of the facility to regularise their UK tax affairs with HMRC.
By coming forward under the GDF they may be able to take advantage of a number of special terms.
Further guidance on the GDF about eligibility and making a disclosure, including the full MOU and Frequently Asked Questions, is available from the States of Guernsey and HMRC websites:
