Grint Sues HMRC For £1M

Rupert Grint, who appeared as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film series, is suing HMRC for a £1M tax refund.

According to The Guardian, the actor is objecting to a decision by HMRC to prevent him employing an accounting period shorter than 12 months between 31 July 2009 and 5 April 2010 – the eve of the new tax year in which a 50% top rate of tax came into force.

According to Grint’s accountant, Dan Clay, this refusal resulted in an additional tax payment of £1M.

HMRC rejected the date change after it was called into question by an accounting document discovered during an unrelated and routine VAT inspection which showed a different date.

Grint’s lawyers argued this document, relied on by HMRC, was just an informal summary of financial information, never intended to constitute an official set of accounts.

Lawyers told the tribunal that there was nothing improper or untoward about the date change. The hearing is now closed.

Will the muggles at HMRC win?

Tax does have to be taxing.
