Under our anti-avoidance powers we serve Warning Notices (WN) to targets and other directly affected parties to advise of the intention to exercise our powers, such as s38 and s43. If following the issuing of a WN the parties come to a settlement then we do not need to proceed with the use of our powers.

More information about our regulatory and enforcement decisions is available on our website.
