HMRC Taxes HM Courts and Tribunal Services


HMRC have slapped HM Courts and Tribunals Service with a £12.5m tax bill

The department was hit with the bill by HMRC in relation to incorrect assessments of workers’ employment status (IR35 rears its ugly head again!), according to its annual report for 2020/21.

In 2019, the Ministry of Justice was told to revisit employment status determinations made between April 2017 and April 2020.

The tax liabilities related to undisclosed number of workers who were previously concluded as operating outside of the off-payroll working rules by HMRC’s Check Employment Status for Tax (CEST) tool.

On the plus side, HMCTS won't end up paying the bill, the ultimate liability rests with us the taxpayers!

Tax does have to be taxing.
