Loan Charge Causes "Widespread Anxiety and Distrust"


John Mann, Treasury sub-committee chair, speaking about the loan charge said:
Setting aside the policy, HMRC’s administrative approach to the payment of large unexpected tax bills has been sensible. The delay, however, in clarifying payment terms for those wanting to settle their past use of such schemes has caused widespread anxiety and distrust.
An HMRC spokesman said:
We know that some people are facing large tax bills, often as a result of using tax-avoiding loan schemes over a number of years, so we have responded by providing affordable payment arrangements and enhanced practical support.
In other words HMRC will not change their approach, until parliament steps in and eliminates the retrospective element of this issue.

Tax does have to be taxing.

HMRC Fiasco Impacts Taxpayers


It seems that there has been a "glitch" within HMRC that has resulted in incorrect or missing self-assessment statements to taxpayers.

The problem has been flagged up by Moore Stephens and Blick Rothenberg. Both have a number of clients who have either not received their usual half-yearly statement, or who have received it but find it shows a zero balance even though payments were due. 

As a consequence, some taxpayers are likely not to make the outstanding payment they were expecting to in July, while others may be undercharged.  

This could lead to unexpectedly large tax bills and interest charges when they have to pay the full amount in January 2020. 

Nimesh Shah, a partner at Blick Rothenberg, is quoted by Money Observer
Due to a system error, HMRC had not generated payments on account for 2018/19 for some taxpayers. A number of statements have been issued by HMRC that do not show anything actually due on 31 July 2019.”
HMRC has failed to correct the problem, even though it has known about the error for six months.
If a person has received a statement which does not look correct and does not include second payment that they feel is due, they should contact HMRC immediately. Similarly, you may not receive a statement at all, so it’s worth double-checking.”
However, he adds, the safer approach is to make the payment you believe to be due and not necessarily rely on HMRC.

Read that piece of advice again, and learn it:

DO NOT RELY ON HMRC!
 
Moore Stephens warns that although HMRC has made clear that taxpayers who received incorrect statements or none in July will not face interest charges for underpayment or non-payment at that point, there is no leeway being offered when those taxpayers face a demand for the full tax payment in January, even though this may be the fault of HMRC

The official HMRC line is that it’s the individual’s responsibility to ensure that assessments are checked and correct.

To repeat:

DO NOT RELY ON HMRC!

Tax does have to be taxing.

HMRC Misses R&D Tax Relief Targets 95% of The Time


Research undertaken by Jumpstart, one of the UK’s leading R&D tax relief specialists, found there was a significant backlog of R&D tax claims which had resulted in delays processing tax rebate payments.


Jumpstart said currently SMEs claiming the relief are facing a wait of more than 90 days as HMRC is just beginning to administer applications made at the start of April 2019 – significantly later than the agency’s four week target.

The firm found that Research and Development Expenditure Credit (RDEC) claims for larger companies are experiencing even greater delays, with HMRC currently not processing any submitted after December 20 2018.

A spokesman for HMRC said it was “sorry” for the time taken and said it had hired additional staff to try to speed up the process.

HMRC’s practice notes for the R&D specialist units say an expected turnaround time should be around 28 days. According to the agency, these are not achieved in 95% of cases.

Outstanding!

HMRC's Move To India Delayed By Asbestos


In 2016 I wrote that HMRC had selected India Buildings as the preferred location for its new Liverpool home, leasing the majority of the office space within the 350,000 sq ft landmark property.

A loyal reader kindly pointed out that this move is now delayed, thanks to the discovery of asbestos.

I thought asbestos in buildings had long since been dealt with?

HMRC's Internal Announcement Re Thompson's Revolving Door


Sir Jonathan Thompson is to leave HMRC to take up a new role as Chief Executive of the Financial Reporting Council. Sir Jonathan will lead the organisation through its transformation into the Audit, Reporting and Governance Authority, a new regulator with stronger powers announced today by Business Secretary Greg Clark. 
Sir Jonathan said: “It’s been a tremendous privilege to lead HMRC for more than three years, so to leave now has not been an easy decision for me to make. However, to have the opportunity to lead the Financial Reporting Council, as it turns into the Audit, Governance and Reporting Authority, and to promote public trust in doing business in the UK, at a point when we’re about to forge new alliances across the world, is too exciting to turn down. 
“I’m immensely proud to have led HMRC as we delivered year-on-year increases in the collection of revenues due for public services; prepared for Brexit and the challenges it will bring; and oversaw a recovery in customer service levels making dealing with their tax affairs easier for everyone.
“I’m also pleased to have made real changes that will help make HMRC a great place to work – replacing PMR with Performance and Development Conversations, commissioning the Respect at Work review and kicking off pay reform, as well as seeing the opening of the first of our new regional centres. My ExCom colleagues remain fully committed to these changes and I’m sorry I won’t be here to see the culmination of that good work.”
Sir Mark Sedwill, Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service, said:  "I am grateful for the enormous contribution Sir Jonathan has made during his time at HMRC.
“Jon has shown himself to be an exceptional leader as the Chief Executive and First Permanent Secretary at HM Revenue and Customs, as well as Head of the Government’s Operational Delivery Profession. During his tenure, we’ve seen year-on-year increases in the revenue collected, which critically goes into funding our public services. 
“Particular credit goes to Jon's work to diversify the workforce: appointing a diverse and gender balanced executive committee, and opening HMRC's first regional centre, with two more due this year.
“I wish Jon all the best in his new role, and I am sure he will be an invaluable asset to the new Audit, Reporting and Governance Authority.”
Sir Jonathan will take up his new role in the autumn, and an announcement about a successor will be made in due course.

Jon Thompson Is Leaving HMRC

Sir Jonathan Thompson to step down as HMRC Chief Executive in the Autumn

Announcement comes as HMRC’s Annual Report and Accounts shows HMRC in a strong position collecting record revenues due for public services.
Photograph of Sir Jonathan Thompson
Sir Jonathan Thompson has announced today that he is to leave HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in the Autumn after more than three years as Chief Executive and First Permanent Secretary to take on a new role as Chief Executive of the Financial Reporting Council (FRC).
Sir Jonathan joined HMRC in April 2016 and led the organisation through a period of change and significant performance improvements, including:
  • successive, record-breaking increases in the collection of tax revenues due and compliance revenues
  • a general downward trend in the tax gap – the gap between tax owed and tax paid
  • an overall recovery in customer service levels
  • the introduction of Making Tax Digital – online business tax accounts
  • opening HMRC’s first regional centre with two more due this year
  • preparing for the challenges and opportunities of Brexit
Sir Jonathan will, along with the other new members of the FRC leadership team, take the organisation through its transformation to the Audit, Reporting and Governance Authority.
This new enhanced regulator was announced by Business Secretary Greg Clark in response to the comprehensive Independent Review led by Sir John Kingman. The new regulator will have a new mandate and stronger powers set down in law.
Sir Jonathan will take up his new role in the Autumn.
Sir Jonathan said:
It’s been a tremendous privilege to lead HMRC for more than three years, so to leave now has not been an easy decision for me to make. However, to have the opportunity to lead the Financial Reporting Council, as it turns into the Audit, Governance and Reporting Authority, and to promote public trust in doing business in the UK, at a point when we’re about to forge new alliances across the world, is too exciting to turn down.
I’m immensely proud to have led HMRC as we delivered year-on-year increases in the collection of revenues due for public services; prepared for Brexit and the challenges it will bring; and oversaw a recovery in customer service levels making dealing with their tax affairs easier for everyone.

I wish Jon all the best in his new role, and I am sure he will be an invaluable asset to the new Audit, Reporting and Governance Authority.
Sir Jonathan’s announcement comes on the day that HMRC publishes its Annual Report and Accounts showing a challenging but successful year across a range of areas. The highlights for the 2018 to 2019 report include:
  • Collecting more money than ever before to pay for the UK’s public services - a record £627.9 billion in total revenue, representing a 3.6% increase on last year.
  • Generating £34.1 billion than could have been lost by tackling avoidance, evasion and non-compliance, including more than £2.9 billion from tackling offshore tax initiatives – and we’ve kept the tax gap low.
  • Helping more customers than ever to pay their taxes quickly and easily online – 19 million people have signed up to Personal Tax Accounts and 93.5% of Self Assessment returns were completed online.
  • Taking a major step forward in Making Tax Digital for Business, launching our new mandated service for digital record keeping and for filing VAT returns online. More than 93,000 businesses signed up for the pilot – and this has grown to over 500,000 since the full launch on 1 April 2019.
  • Transforming and modernising the way we operate while also delivering the huge, complex task of preparing for the UK to leave the EU. Around 5,400 full-time equivalent employees are working on EU exit, building the customs, VAT and excise systems the UK will need and preparing our customers for leaving the EU, with or without a deal.
  • Taking further action to tackle bullying, harassment and discrimination at work wherever we find it, including a full review of our policies, processes and standards following an independent report into what it’s like to work at HMRC.
Sir Jonathan will take up this new role in the Autumn. The recruitment process will begin shortly and an announcement about a successor will be made in due course. Jim Harra, Deputy Chief Executive and Second Permanent Secretary at HMRC, continues to be the department’s lead for exiting the EU, as has been the case since he took over this role in January 2018.

Baroness Neville-Rolfe Says Tax Complexity Is a "Slow Killer"


Baroness Neville-Rolfe, in a speech on business growth and tax, revealed that the addition of “hundreds of complications” over the past 10 years had doubled the number of words in the tax code.

Estimates put its length now at up to 10 million words. Factor in “a confusing and growing regulatory system in sector after sector” and you have a recipe for dampening business growth, whatever the strength of the underlying economy.
With a simpler approach, we could have avoided some embarrassment, I refer, for example, to Making Tax Digital, to those trading with the EU who are finding it so difficult to get the tax codes they need to export post Brexit, and to the wretched loan charge fiasco.”
Tax complexity, she said, is a “slow killer”.

Sadly the complexity will continue to increase!

Admin Announcement


A loyal reader has asked me if I have been asked/required to pre approve comments before they are published.

The answer is: no one has asked me to pre approve comments.

I have put pre approval in place, because some idiot from the Middle East kept spamming the comments with links to his pest control business in Arabic.

Apologies if this causes a delay in your comments appearing, but be assured it is not the result of sinister forces (other than an idiot in the Middle East looking for free advertising!).

HMRC Tops Out Stratford Hub


Yesterday HMRC completed the topping out at the 12-storey office in Stratford, where HMRC will establish a new Regional Centre.

HMRC has also leased a further 58,000 sq. ft. to become the sole tenant of the 300,000 sq. ft. development next to Westfield Stratford City.

Work&Place reports that the topping-out ceremony was attended by senior executives from Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, HMRC and Legal & General, which has funded the development. the offices are located above the shopping centre at Westfield Stratford City.

Works continue with completion of the facade and internal works, in preparation for handover of office floors for final fit out by HMRC.

Work on the new regional hub commenced in November 2017 and today’s announcement sees that deal extended to cover the entire building, which has been developed, constructed and leased by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield. The development will accommodate approximately 4,400 HMRC employees from late 2020.

The £37BN Tax Burden - Whither Simplicity?


HMRC has collected £37bn from brand-new taxes that it has introduced over the last decade, according to UHY Hacker Young.

The eight new taxes and levies on business cost £7.6bn in 2018/19, up from £7.4bn the previous year, but UHY Hacker Young warned that the success of these new taxes could lead to more.

Clive Gawthorpe, partner at UHY Hacker Young, said:
Adding new taxes and placing a heavier burden on businesses does not seem to fit in with the Government’s aims to simplify tax.

These new taxes have already brought in billions of pounds in a relatively short space of time. If we want tax simplification shouldn’t we be reducing the number of taxes?

Each new tax adds more and more of a burden on businesses. Given the economic uncertainty perhaps the Government should be holding off on plans for new taxes.

CEST Is Irrelevant - HMRC Removes Its Own Tool!

As well as branding the application of CEST “irrelevant”, HMRC added: “While CEST can be helpful in providing guidance, it is only the application of the legislation and relevant case law to the hypothetical facts that must be considered by the tribunal.

It is disappointing that HMRC attempted to have the CEST analysis excluded as evidence. Even more so that it hasn’t conducted a detailed assessment itself to agree what the correct CEST determination should be,” comments Chaplin. “The taxman appears to be acting in bad faith. CEST was supposed to offer certainty to taxpayers, yet HMRC is removing this by ignoring its own tool.”
