HMRC Is Shite

HMRC Is Shite
Dedicated to the taxpayers of Britain, and the employees of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), who have to endure the monumental shambles that is HMRC.

In one small piece of good news for the hapless taxpayer, it has been announced that HMRC has backed down on plans to make unannounced visits to private residences.

HMRC had wanted to update its powers, and be able to enter private homes without a search warrant. This of course is contrary to the principles of English law laid down over the centuries.

However, the resulting furore that these plans had unleashed has caused HMRC to back down. In its latest consultation papers it states that visits would only be by agreement, or with a warrant.

HMRC is getting above itself, the state most assuredly should not have unrestricted access to people's homes.

  1. HMRC have the writs of assistance, they don't use them much but there is no requirement for a search warrant.
