My thanks to a loyal reader who has alerted me to problems wrt duplicate receipts of corporation tax payments being made by HMRC.
"You may be interested to learn that HMRC has been duplicating receipts of Corporation Tax payments and then making repayment to the company.Have other people come across this problem?
We discovered this when a corporate client received repayment of the Corporation Tax liability we had advised them to pay. Checking HMRC's Online Services we noted that the payment had been recorded twice (and had misdescribed the method of payment).
HMRC has just called to advise that they have discovered this has happened with other corporate taxpayers but did not know:
- how many companies had been impacted
- which companies had been impacted
- what had caused the problem
- how they were going to fix the problem
At a time when public finances are so stretched, we are sure you would agree that the level of incompetence demonstrated by HMRC is appalling and the fact that they have not a clue how and when they are going to resolve the matter shows just how poor HMRC's senior management team is performing."
Tax does have to be taxing.
