HMRC, having admitted that their call centre service is not running at its best, have decided to further improve its "customer service" by shutting down its website between 2nd - 6th April (ironically 5th April is the end of the tax year).
Yes, you did read the correctly, HMRC will shut down its website between 2nd-6th April!
HMRC insist that this closure is necessary for "routine" computer maintenance.
Funny time of year to choose to do it, even if HMRC are not at their busiest during this time, their "customers" (taxpayers to you and I) are busy sorting out ISA's etc etc.
Taking the pish or what?
Tax does have to be taxing.
