Campaigners are seeking permission to launch a High Court challenge against HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) over an alleged "sweetheart" tax deal with a multinational banking giant.


UK Uncut Legal Action want a declaration that an agreement allowing Goldman Sachs to skip a multi-million pound interest bill on unpaid tax on bonuses was unlawful. They also want £20 million allegedly involved to be returned to the public purse.
