HMRC Is Shite

HMRC Is Shite
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.

Friday, 25 November 2011


The Guardian reports that UK Uncut is concerned that HMRC is delaying a judicial review of the infamous £10M Goldman Sachs tax settlement.

UK Uncut claim that HMRC has twice extended the deadline for responding to its legal claim, even though the details of the settlement have already been challenged by MPs on the Public Accounts Committee.

The Morning Star reports that Leigh Day & Co (lawyers for UK Uncut Legal Action) wrote to HMRC this week, informing them that its ongoing delay in dealing with their claim is unacceptable.

Partner at Leigh Day Richard Stein is quoted:

"We believe that HMRC has had plenty of time to make 'enquiries' about the Goldman Sachs deal, particularly given its requirement to give evidence to the select committee about the issue.

We do not think their ongoing delay is acceptable."

A spokesman for HMRC said it had asked for a delay to the judicial review, because it needed more time to investigate the issues raised.

Methinks this will be one to watch!

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Jack is hoping this will just go away. The arrogance of himself and his sycophants astounding. He has even opened himself up to questions on the intranet via the 'hotseat' so all of his minions can ask him anything that concerns them. Inglase (The lawyer from the pac committee)has just finished his hotseat Q&A all questions re Goldman sucks were removed by moderators! I hope he goes through that revolving door very soon.
