I don't like meetings. By Simon Sweetman
Simon Sweetman responds to his critic; "So, after all these years, am I still an inspector of Taxes at heart?"
It is true that I believe that HMRC is changing the way it does compliance, and I think it is changing for the better despite all the genuine worries about new powers. I think this because I see the evidence of intention to change : it has to be said that the proof of the pudding here is going to be what happens in real offices to real taxpayers.
