Guidance released by HMRC confirms its commitment to using APNs (Accelerated Payment Notices) in order to deal with tax avoidance schemes and how they intend on using the penalties.

The Accelerated Payment scheme was introduced in order to collect disputed tax upfront and since its introduction in 2014, HMRC have collected £3 billion from users of tax avoidance schemes.

HMRC have re-released its guidance for APNs with updated information on how to appeal when disagreeing with the penalty. There’s no formal right to appeal against an APN, however, if you believe that you meet some of the conditions set out in their guidance, then you can make representations to HMRC.
