My thanks to a loyal reader who dropped me a note yesterday about HMRC DMB Field Force collectors and their claims for lunch, tea and coffee:
"You might care to speculate why every single one of HMRC DMB Field Force collectors was recently told that they would no longer be able to claim for tea, coffee and lunch taken while out on the road (max £8.25 per day).Views and comments welcome.
According to management lizards, they should never have been entitled to claim at all.
Interestingly, when they protested, they were told in no uncertain terms to back off, otherwise an exercise to recover the last 5 YEARS in claims was on the cards.
a) If this money was improperly paid in the first place
b) If it was, why is it not being recovered (taxpayers should be lucky!), or
c) If they are nasty bullying shits trying to score points with excom by making up the rules as they go along.....??"
Tax does have to be taxing.
