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.

Cry Freedom

Cry FreedomIn theory, we live in a transparent democracy where information about the activities of the state and its organs should be relatively easy to access. Indeed, the Freedom of Information Act is meant to improve that transparency.

Not so it seems over at HMRC.

On the HMRC site you can view an online version of the National Insurance Manual.


Here is a link to the page about NI Fraud.

Can you spot the "slight" problem here?

Good isn't it?

Poor old HMRC really haven't grasped this "freedom" thing, have they?

Seemingly HMRC do not believe in freedom of information, HMRC believe that information should only be disseminated on a need to know basis.

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. HMRC have always had certain parts of their supposedly public guidance off limits to the public but rarely is is it so obvious as on that page. Excellent find!
