Scottish Independence - Whither HMRC?

With nine days until the vote on Scottish independence, it looks as though it will be a very close run thing indeed.

I would very much like to hear from loyal readers their take on what will happen to HMRC, both North and South of the border, in the event that Scotland votes "yes".

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. An opportunity for a whole series of clusterfucks unless some preventive work is undertaken e.g.;

    Staffing - a halt to all redundancies and office closures, should help to ensure the 'customers' get the type of service they want,
    IT - learn from the mistakes that were made doon South,
    Lean etc. - stop the rot before it takes hold, ban common purpose and fer fecks sake dinnae have nae mission statement,
    The Logo - get some kids to design it and save a few spondoolies,
    Call Centres - aaargh! Spawn of sassenach interbreeding
    Homer - where is William Wallace when you need him?
    Excom - see previous question...
    Whisky Galore - bring it on,
    aah, halcyon days

    1. Should have added a supertax rate on deep fried Mars Bars, Haggis and Irn Bru, the Scots Treasury would never be short of spondoolies or whatever they end up calling the new currency.
      One thing for sure, the new flag and currency are not likely to reflect any links to the House of Windsor. Ireland next, then Wales.
      we're doomed I tell ye doomed ;)

  2. Well the Scottish government has already created Revenue Scotland to run the tax powers being devolved by the 2012 Scotland Act

    The Nationalists clearly want to control not only the levying of tax but its administration as well. To be honest it makes sense otherwise any Scottish government would essentially be at the mercy of HMRC which is controlled by the UK Treasury in Westminster for its funding. That means HMRC is likely to have 10% of its current 'customers' prized away from it. Ones suspects this is going to happen regardless of whether the vote is Yes or No on 18 September since the Westminster politicians have essentially already promised further devolution on top of the 2012 proposals in the current referendum campaign. Of course,this is going to blow all of EXCOMS extravagant IT plans for Digital administration clean out of the water
