n relation to tax offences those accused and found to have evaded tax, are given mitigation from the potential 100% penalty levels.
This takes the form of three levels which are Disclosure, Co-operation and Size and Gravity.
Disclosure is what the famous tax case of Lester Piggot the jockey did not do when investigated and which led to him being jailed. Instead of coming clean, which is always recommended in investigation cases of any level, he chose to refrain from fessing up to his Swiss bank account.
