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.

Hang On A Minute!
My thanks to a loyal reader who sent me a copy of an article posted on the HMRC intranet last week by The Director Corporate Communications, Stephen Hardwick.
It is on a strand called 'Hang on a Minute!" which basically answers criticism from the press on various HMRC issues.
Here it is:
In an article headlined 'Exposed: Taxman's illegal war against Britain's small businesses' , The Independent claimed HMRC is deliberately using late-payment fines to generate extra revenue.
HMRC does not use small business penalties to boost revenue. We do not want penalty payments either from businesses or individuals. We use penalties purely to encourage on-time filing and to be fair to the vast majority of taxpayers who file on time.
HMRC supports small businesses as shown by the £7.71 billion of small business tax we have deferred to help with cash flow problems.
We treat all taxpayers the same irrespective of their size and nature."
Well then, I leave it to you (my loyal readers) to express your opinions about the accuracy (or otherwise) of the above.
Tax does have to be taxing.
