Computer Says No - HMRC Shuts Down Its System
Those of you attempting to engage with certain parts of HMRC's online systems today will have a few problems.
HMRC will shut down its main online processing systems from 8am today (20th August) for 24 hours, to undertake essential maintenance and upgrade work.
The online mechanism for entering data and filing self assessment tax returns, VAT returns, Corporation Tax and PAYE returns will be unavailable according to a very well hidden page on HMRC's site.
Also shutdown will be the online systems for administering Child Benefits, the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), the EC Sales List (ECSL) and Reverse Charge Sales List (RCSL), Inheritance Tax (IHT) form requests, pension schemes, Stamp taxes and the shared workspace facilities.
Here's a radical thought, how about putting information such as this on the main web page?
Could it be that they don't want too many people to know that their online systems suck?
Tax does have to be taxing.
