In a statement to The Mirror, HMRC confirmed it was seeking to interview both compliant and non-compliant people among Britain's 11,000 "High Net Worth customers."
HMRC said the research was part of an ongoing strategy to increase collection for the public and was focused on 'understanding the attitudes and behavioural triggers' of these people rather than gathering specific tax accounting intelligence.
Those asking the questions would be social researchers, not forensic accountants. Estimated cost of the survey up to £80K.
Tax does have to be taxing.
