Increasing rudeness of the Revenue
I have this morning received a letter from the Debt Management people in Bradford regarding one of my clients who lives overseas and who owes the Revenue tax. No problem so far.
However, although the letter is addressed to myself, there is no intoduction with a standard "Dear Sir" or anything, it simply states Re: Client Name,reference and NI number, then goes straight on to state "Please arrange for this balance to be paid immediately to avoid case being transferred to taxpayers country of resident for the tax authority to start recovery action against your client" (The incorrect grammar is the Revenue's, not mine)
It then schedules out the arrears, and simply ends with the line "Interest is running on the amount to pay. Please pay it now" - no 'Yours sincerely' or 'faithfully', or even a name of the ignorant bureaucrat who sent it.
I am intending referring this rudeness to David Varney, as I am not at all happy with the way we agents are being written to now.
Has anyone else received this sort of offensive rude letter, or is it just me?
