Tax Breakdown

As the week starts off grey, wet and windy a bright light cheers the spirits.

This week sees the start of HMRC’s new initiative to send taxpayers a personal breakdown of how their tax is spent. Approximately 24M annual tax summaries (complete with pie charts) will be either sent out or, in the case of 8M self assessment taxpayers, made available online.

Local authorities do much the same with their colourful, pie chart laden propaganda booklets.

As to whether this achieves anything tangible for the taxpayers, only time will tell. The cost, according to some figures flying around the internet, is around £12M per annum.

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 Tax Investigation Insurance.

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.

  1. Waste of time. Wont be accurate as nothing hmrc sends ever is! How much will this cost. Millions- but they cant give us a payrise. Still can get rid of more staff to pay for it, eh homer? While more and more letters and calls go unanswered.
    What an embarrasment it is for those of us having to stay in employment at hmrshit.

  2. If my math is wrong I apologise in advance, but I do not believe the figures quoted as true!
    It works out at 50p/taxpayer, which, including postage, production etc. cannot be true?
    That of course is without the 8m on line SA types.
    yep, lies, damn lies and hmrc statistics again!
