This paper focuses on what the Government has, and has not, done since February 2008 in relation to tax avoidance. It analyses the approaches it has adopted and appraises their chance of success; it highlights those changes which increase the likelihood of successful tax avoidance (of which there have been several), offers praise where it is due (as on occasion it is) and it makes the case for continuing change and vigilance in this area.
