Over a month ago I wrote that HMRC was going to send some of its experts to Pakistan to offer advice on how to increase its tax take.
It seems that, despite the fact the resources are scarce in HMRC's UK operations and that there are room for improvements in service/efficiency etc, Pakistan is not the only country that will receive help from HMRC.
The Guardian reported last week that HMRC will work with Ethiopian and Tanzanian tax authorities to undertake a health check to look at the structure of their revenue authorities, their potential to raise tax, and the degree of corruption or evasion either by individuals or companies.
All very nice and charitable. However, as I have noted before; why don't the HMRC experts stay at home, and help advise HMRC resolve its own issues wrt tax collection?
As the old saying goes, charity begins at home!
Tax does have to be taxing.
