HMRC has published advice about working through an intermediary.
Topics covered are:
- How these schemes work
- Before you sign up to a scheme
- What you should check
- The risks of using these schemes
- If you've been asked to sign up to a scheme
- What you should do if you're involved in these types of schemes
