HMRC IT Downtime

Heads up for next week folks, there's going to be some downtime on the HMRC website, as per Government Gateway:

Government Gateway - Advanced Warning

We will be making some changes to the Government Gateway between 22:00 Tuesday 6th November 2012 and 06:00 Wednesday 7th November 2012, during which time the service will be unavailable.

We appreciate that any time a service is unavailable there is some inconvenience. We have worked with the government departments using the Gateway to reduce the time for which the service will be unavailable, and have scheduled it at the most appropriate time.

The HMRC site offers some more detail on the issue here.

In the meantime a loyal reader advises me that there are some issues wrt accessing certain agent pages on the HMRC site.

Is anyone else having this problem? 

Tax does have to be taxing.

Professional Cover Against the Threat of Costly TAX and VAT Investigations

Insurance to protect you against the cost of enquiry or dispute with HMRC is available from several sources including Solar Taxwise.

Ken Frost has negotiated a 10% discount on any polices that may suit your needs.

However, neither Ken Frost nor HMRCISSHITE either endorses or recommends their services.

What is TAXWISE?

TAXWISE is a tax-fee protection service that will pay up to £75,000 towards your accountant's fees in the event of an HM Revenue & Customs full enquiry or dispute.
