Inglese Retires

My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to an article in The Lawyer that notes that HMRC have appointed a new general counsel to replace the retiring Anthony Inglese. Gill Aitken from the Department of Work & Pensions’ (DWP) where she is director general of legal services, will take up the role at the end of January 2014.

As an aside, in 2010 she topped the DWP bonus league by earning a £10K bonus on top of her £125K salary.

Loyal readers with long memories will recall that in November 2011 the Commons Public Accounts Committee took the unusual step of making Anthony Inglese CB, General Counsel and Solicitor HMRC, swear an oath at a PAC hearing into HMRC Accounts and Tax Disputes.

Tax does have to be taxing.

Professional Cover Against the Threat of Costly TAX and VAT Investigations

Insurance to protect you against the cost of enquiry or dispute with HMRC is available from several sources including Solar Tax Investigation Insurance.

Ken Frost has negotiated a 10% discount on any polices that may suit your needs.

However, neither Ken Frost nor HMRCISSHITE either endorses or recommends their services.

  1. Good riddance to the legal weasel. Mind you, his spectacular performance in front of the PAC will live long in the memory - one of the funniest things I've seen in years. 'Yes, Minister' couldn't have done it better.
