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.

Any Time, Any Place, Anywhere
Tax advisers and opposition MPs believe that safeguards for human rights under the finance bill are still inadequate, despite attempts to amend the bill in June. They fear that the sweeping new powers for tax inspectors to inspect business premises and records could be used in a draconian way against businesses.
David Furst, Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) president, has warned that individual officers could use the new powers "in a way which is inappropriate and un¬acceptable".
John Whiting of the Chartered Institute of Taxation said the HMRC's powers to gain access to premises could be compared with an old advertising slogan for Martini: "Any time, any place, anywhere".
You have been warned!
Tax does have to be taxing.
