A Spanking of Laziness
HMRC have got themselves in hot water over a blanket mailshot of around 30,000 letters, re offshore accounts, some of which were sent to the wrong people.
The letter urged the recipient to disclose funds held in their offshore accounts, under the New Disclosure Opportunity (NDO), even though the NDO rules didn't apply.
Accountancy Age quote one tax adviser as saying that the approach "smacks of laziness".
Advisers claim that a simple check of their clients' tax affairs could have revealed that NDO was not applicable to these individuals.
The advisers are missing the point here, HMRC were using this opportunity as a fishing trip.
Tax does have to be taxing.
