It is refreshing to see that, despite their problems, HMRC does have a sense of humour.
I am advised that during the course of a tax enquiry into the affairs of a taxpayer, who paid CIS tax on all earnings, HMRC asked the source of a "suspicious" bank deposit in 2006 (Note, all other items had been cleared).
No prizes for guessing the source of this "suspicious" deposit.
Yes, that's right, it was a tax refund from the previous year's tax return (ie it came from HMRC)!
It was even supported by HMRC's own notification of tax repayment.
HMRC were just having a laugh, yes?
Tax does have to be taxing.
