“Diverted profits tax revenue collected by HMRC in 2016-17 totalled £281m, leaping from £31m collected in the previous year, according to data released by HMRC.”

“However, law firm Pinsent Masons said that many DPT disputes become transfer pricing disputes, and HMRC is spending an increasing amount of time settling the cases.”

““Transfer pricing disputes are taking HMRC nearly two-and-a-half years to settle – a year longer than its internal target. This is creating a serious backlog,” said Heather Self, partner at the firm.”

“Self said that she expected the number of DPT charging notices issued by HMRC to increase next year, as the tax applies to profits arising from 1 April 2015, and the deadline for notices for the period ending 31 December 2015 is 31 December 2017.”
