Following calls from desperate contractors facing the loan charge tax demands, the Loan Charge Action Group (LCAG) wrote to Jon Thompson on the 13th June, calling on HMRC to set up a 24-hour helpline for those facing suicidal thoughts and severe anxiety as a result of receiving unpayable demands and threatening letters from HMRC.
Unsurprisignly, HMRC took over three weeks to respond to the letter and then the reply came not from Thompson, but from Julie Elsey, the person at HMRC responsible not for mental health, but for Counter Avoidance.
Business Matters reports that Elsey’s letter offered to assist to “help people put their tax affairs right”. However, the advice is only available between 8:30am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
Tax does have to be taxing.
