In order to aid its "dash for cash" (ie increase its tax take) HMRC will be hiring 1,150 temporary staff to work between now and March 2012.
However, HMRC have denied that it paying bonuses to staff for increasing the tax take.
I wonder how well trained theses temporary staff will be?
Maybe some of temps hired will be those HMRC staff recently made redundant?
Comments and opinions, as ever, are always welcome.
Tax does have to be taxing.
