  1. What they say and what they do, are two different things.

  2. It's an organisation rife with casual law/rule breaking & corruption with sub-human standards of behaviour from senior management as most staff know...

    Makes you wonder why they seem to be turning a blind eye to so much wrong doing...terrible people...time to drain the swamp and reform this failed outfit.

  3. I think you may find the number of S9a enquiries being issued has been drastically reduced. This is probably due to a lack of experienced staff. There is also a problem with the processing of earlier years' tax returns. The compliance side cannot enquire into them if the returns have not been processed. The information, by it's very nature, will relate to earlier years'. These returns languish for a year or more before being processed. Put in a freedom of information request and ask.

  4. You're probably right. The returns will be sent electronically now, so they will have been processed. As you suggest, lack of experienced staff. Or just lack of any staff whatsover is the most likely cause. Double speak at its finest. Close offices wholesale, lose hundreds/thousands of years experience (who weren't exactly paid a fortune to being with). Then panic recruit at the regional centres. Blame it on Brexit, the universal generic excuse.

    I dread to think how much tax is going down the toilet. Enough to cover the puke news licence fee for more than a few over 75's

    Interesting if there was FOI request for that.
