Tyrie Castigates HMRC's "Fairness"


Andrew Tyrie, chair of the Treasury select committee, is not happy with how HMRC treats film investors and has written a letter to the Chancellor about it.

The FT reports that Tyrie said that “very severe financial distress” had been inflicted by the crackdown on schemes exploiting film industry tax breaks:

If a tax avoidance scheme is found by the courts to be illegal, then investors in the scheme have no option but to repay the tax that they have avoided. 

But HMRC needs to treat people fairly, including investors in what are now considered to be tax avoidance schemes, and to be transparent and timely in their approach....

This sorry story is a clear example of how tax reliefs aimed at achieving a specific policy objective — in this case to boost the UK film industry — can result in unacceptable complexity in the tax system providing scope for confusion and also some abuse. The result is that for many years HMRC have been involved in a long-running legal battle against avoidance schemes."
However, fear not, HMRC says that everything is fair:
We have worked hard to tackle abuse in the system on behalf of the vast majority of investors who play by the rules, ensuring they are enforced fairly and with sensitivity.
Nothing to see here!

Software Vendors Not Ready For MTD

Oh dear, it seems that MTD is not going according to plan.

Making Tax Digital programme director Theresa Middleton has warned members of the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee that some software vendors will not be ready to take part in the Making Tax Digital pilot scheme set to commence in April 2017.

It seems that the communication between HMRC and the private sector isn't all it should be!

HMRC Has Hardly Moved An Inch

Kudos to Lord Turnbull who, during yesterday's grilling of HMRC, said that HMRC has "hardly moved an inch" and that it was heading for "a major row with the public" over MTD.

Landlords To Be Responsible For Excise Policing

In an attempt by HMRC to try to pass the responsibility for policing to others, it seems that commercial property landlords could be forced to actively inspect their properties and police tenants suspected of tobacco and other excise duty evasion under plans proposed by HM Revenue and Customs.

The proposal, which is included among potential new sanctions to tackle tobacco duty evasion and other excise duty evasion, is "another example of HMRC pushing the burden of policing tax compliance onto businesses themselves", according to tax disputes expert Stuart Walsh of Pinsent Masons.

HMRC and the state will not be satisfied until we have become a nation of informers, feeding the state's insatiable need for cash derived from taxes and fines!

Robots To Pay Tax

As HMRC rush full steam ahead to the Valhalla of digital tax, and the looming Brexit, it seems that it has something else to cope with.

Step forward Bill Gates with his proposal that robots should pay taxes!

I can't wait to see HMRC battle Skynet!
