I need to make you aware of the new HMRC investigation regime that came into being in April 2010. This is partly due to the old Labour government’s need for cash – but there is no sign yet that the new Coalition will change anything.
HM Revenue and Customs have been charged by the government with two main aims. One, to cut costs and Two, to extract much more money from us tax payers. So as staff are cut, how can they achieve their other aim of increasing revenue?
