That at least is the conclusion to be drawn from this article on Tax Hell:
"I was approached by a reader who who was in a real fix with HMRC. I won’t give the details because it’s an ongoing case, but I can tell you that HMRC said they were going to take the investigation back over 19 years.It is not very "nice" of HMRC to tell porkies like that.
Well they just can’t do that and they were duly told so.
Honestly those investigators at HMRC, they are so cheeky!"
Evidently things must be becoming somewhat desperate in the HMRC bunker!
Tax does have to be taxing.
