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, 11 November 2011
My thanks to a loyal reader who recently sent me a copy of the response that she received from HMRC, regarding a Freedom of Information enquiry that she made concerning the number of vehicles HMRC seized that are then auctioned off.
Rather bizarrely, even though HMRC recommend that taxpayers keep good quality financial records, HMRC don't have the information to hand!
"Thank you for your e-mail of 7 September asking for the following information.
Dear HM Revenue and Customs, you state that in the period 2008/9 that you seized 5618 vehicles.
You further state that the sale of seized vehicles for the period 2008/9 totalled £4,259K.
I therefore request under FOI the following.
For the period 2008/9 - How many vehicles were sent to auction (l understand the auction company you use is Wilsons Auctions)?
How many vehicles were scrapped and to which company(s)?
How many vehicles were restored to their owners?
I am answering under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FoIA).
I can confirm that the company the Department uses is Wilsons Auctions and would advise you that, following a search of our records, I have established HMRC does not hold the remainder of the information you requested.
If you are not happy with this reply you may request a review by writing to the HMRC FOI Team, Room 1C/25, 100 Parliament Street, London SWIA 2BQ or email [email address]"
