HMRC, in the face of mounting opposition from the unions, business and finance professionals to their plans to outsource debt collection have told Accountancy Age:
"We will only proceed with a pilot once we are satisfied that the benefits outweigh the risks."
Two points that people need to bear in mind:
1 Benefits to whom? HMRC or the taxpayers?
2 The risks include the loss of taxpayers' personal data handed over to private firms.
Tax does have to be taxing.
