HMRC May Miss Aspire Deadline

The National Audit Office has recently published a memorandum into HMRC's progress wrt Replacing the Aspire Contract. Rather unhelpfully it does not present any conclusions. However it does present a list of the risks faced by HMRC in replacing Aspire.

Unsurprisingly HMRC is at risk of not being able to complete the switch-over of its Aspire contract in time, while HMRC’s internal IT organisation and revenue & custom’s Digital Technology Services may fail to work together productively.

It was ever thus!

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. What yet another possible B**** Up by an incompetent organisation: typical of UK politics and Civil Service with a We will Muddle Through approach because we are government. All I hope is that tax records will be lost!

    1. HMRC are an incompetent organisation, not fit for purpose and it is about time more of their work is outsourced to the hard working private sector.
