HMRC's Snooper Computer

The media are reporting details of HMRC's alleged new 'supercomputer' called Connect, that will be used to track down those who have under declared their tax liabilities.

The Connect system uses information from a range of government and corporate sources to create a profile of a taxpayer’s total income, rather than relying on what the taxpayer declares on their tax return.

When this information differs, the account is flagged up and could be the subject of a further investigation by HMRC.

Apparently Connect has been years in the making, and is thought to have cost £100 million to build.

As to whether reality matches the hype, only time will tell!

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. HMRC cannot be trusted with data or to comply. A number of cases demonstrate that. So while any proportionate use of such IT to catch criminal tax evasion is to be welcomed, my concern would be HMRC sticking their noses into citizens private business without safeguards.

  2. Wonder if IPCC use similar technology?

    Wonder if connect 'connects' those HMRC managers non PAYE incomes?

    1. Who deals with the tax compliance of HMRC staff - is it HMRC or the NAO/IPCC etc??

    2. HMRC are bullies who gain great pleasure out of bullying and ruining people's lives - fact! They are unscrupulous monsters unfit as an organisation to be let near the general public. Never mind a private sector IT system, it is about time the whole thing is privatised.
