HMRC tipsters raking in the cash

Hi there,

I am currently caring out an a client and have come across VAT issue I am not to familiar with.


Senior accountants, tax lawyers and academics have asked for an independent review into HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to improve its performance.


HMRC got on to my client that he was trading, as a tribute musical act and not submitting any returns. We have had three or four long letters , questionnaires, requests.


Two recent tax cases heard by the First-Tier Tribunal show that the courts continue to interpret the phrase “reasonable excuse” more generously that HMRC internal guidance allows for.

I'm starting a business as a freelance editor. 

To begin with I will be in the UK as I get established and build a client base, and sell my house.


HMRC has relaxed its conditions for accepting appeals against late filing penalties for self-assessment tax returns.


Good morning and a fine Monday to you all. Here’s your morning update.
