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.

Financial Power List 2011

My thanks to Accountancy Age for placing me (at 42) on their Financial Power List for 2011. I also appeared in the list in 2006.

The list identifies the top 50 who will wield the most influence over the future direction of accounting.

42 Ken Frost, scourge of HMRC
Known better as one of the ICAEW’s main agitators during its failed attempt to merge with CIPFA, Frost has more recently, and equally successfully, channeled his ire at the taxman. His blog,, has consistently come up with nuggets of information HMRC would rather not have been made public.

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Congratulations Ken, keep with it.

  2. Nil Illegitimus carborundum

  3. Disappointing to see Hairball at 19though. How is him bending over and taking it sideways translated into power?

    That poll is a fix until we know how many restuarant owners in London voted for him.
