Mediation The HMRC Way
HMRC is offering some SME's the opportunity of mediation in disputes about tax.
The Guardian reports that HMRC is running a pilot scheme in Wales, to see if tax disputes can be settled in a "gentlemanly" fashion before going to court.
All very well and decent of HMRC, until that is you look at the substance of the "mediation".
The adjudicator who acts as "watchdog" is staffed entirely by HMRC inspectors and administrators, and the "facilitators" of the mediation process are in fact HMRC staff.
Mediation only works effectively where both parties in the dispute are confident that the mediator is truly independent. In this particular case there is a complete lack of independence.
Tax does have to be taxing.
