As the Spud says

This feels genuine and informed.

Has anyone any further information on this use of HMRC time?

Has a minister been asked to comment on the objective of pursuing what are, at most, technical errors?

Has anyone a copy of instructions to staff on this issue?

If this interpretation is true HMRC would appear to be engaged in a policy that might best be called victimisation in pursuit of meaningless performance targets. And unsurpsringly, that worries me, greatly especially when one of HMRC’s greatest priorities should be ensuring that appropriate sums are paid irrespective of minor technical issues.

There’s just no self awareness there, is there?

  1. I understood that the learned Professor wanted HMRC to spend time in pursuing several million (or given his facility for ludicrous exaggeration perhaps was it several billion?) dormant companies on the Companies House register for tax.

    A futile and pointless exercise that would tie up HMRC personnel until the predicted end of the known Universe

  2. Not simply an ignorance of how State bureaucracies work (or in fact any bureaucracy) but an active unwillingness to learn.

    Sounds like a good start.

  4. Has anyone had a look at what Murphy is wibbling on about here, and is willing to save us the intellectual pain of looking?
