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.
Monday, 5 March 2012
Michael Izza (CEO of the ICAEW) has made some pre budget comments/suggestions about HMRC's service levels etc.
He notes, quite correctly, that HMRC’s poor levels of service create a regulatory burden that impacts disproportionately on SMEs.
He recommends, quite correctly, that the government needs to show support for HMRC’s attempts to improve standards and ensure that HMRC’s board and new senior management are accountable for maintaining progress.
"Every extra hour that a small business spends dealing with HMRC is an hour that could be invested in growth. Poor levels of service at HMRC create a burden on businesses of all sizes, especially SMEs.
Even HMRC has admitted that it does not have enough people with the right skills in the right place. Government must ensure that it gives HMRC the resources it needs to collect tax and support business.”
All very true.
Therefore I would ask the question, why did the government appoint Lin Homer as CEO of HMRC?
Based on her track record in previous roles, and her lack of knowledge of tax, one might almost believe that the government wants to see her and HMRC fail.
Tax does have to be taxing.
