HMRC Is Shite

HMRC Is Shite
Dedicated to the taxpayers of Britain, and the employees of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), who have to endure the monumental shambles that is HMRC.

Dead Hand of Bureaucracy
Patrick Reynolds has set up a petition on the Number 10 Website, calling for HMRC create a similar system:

"There are large numbers of matters of detailed routine in tax matters and in dealings with HMRC that are inefficient and waste a great deal of time. Accountants, tax payers and advisers are well aware of many of them, as are many HMRC staff.

HMRC should be required to have a web site where such matters could be posted. Postings would be restricted to matters of administration and procedures. Postings on individual cases or on taxation policy would not be permitted. HMRC would not be obliged to take account of requests made for changes. They would however be required to explain why aspects of poor administration were allowed to remain unchanged

I doubt that this will ever come to fruition, as HMRC is not managing to cope with the current levels of enquiries and paperwork etc.
