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.

Move Over Darling
As I predicted, Brown's and Darling's plans for a bankers' bonus tax (levied to divert attention from the 1% rise in National Insurance) is rapidly falling apart.
Both HMRC and the Treasury have been forced to admit that that the draft legislation on bank bonuses is poorly written, and will have to be revised in the New Year.
It seems, as ever with Labour's shoddy legislative drafting, that the net for this tax could be drawn very wide indeed (eg more than just "bankers").
HMRC are stressing that asset management firms (including those owned by banks), hedge funds, investment advisers, private equity and family offices would not be hit by the tax.
However, no one believes them!
Tax does have to be taxing.
