HMRC Debt management why so slow?
Clients of mine, (pub tenants of course), have been the subject of a HMRC investigation resulting in unpaid tax plus penalties of more than a quarter of a million pounds - A sum they cannot possibly pay.
Thay have no assets and will be bankrupted.
However, following the first letter from HMRC's debt management unit on 21 December 2007 nothing has happened.
Nothing after NINE MONTHS
The clients contunue to operate their pub as though nothing has changed - they pay neither VAT, payroll taxes or income tax though.
A commercial business owed this sum would have acted months ago, anyone know why HMRC do not appear interested?
