Directors and tax returns - a FTT case

Directors and tax returns - FTT confirms what we've always known

It's an FTT decision, and it simply confirms what the law says, so maybe not news.

Judge Richard Thomas said that a director doesn't have to register for self-assessment simply because he is a director. See para 43 onwards. At 49: "it will be apparent that I consider that the material on the GOV.UK website is wrong and should be removed. No one should be expected to make themselves aware of what is not a correct statement of the law."

Can't understand why HMRC take these cases to FTT.

It's a scandalous waste of taxpayers' money.

They are vicious.

No doubt a product of dealing with idiots for a living.

Will definitely be quoting this case at HMRC when they are refusing to withdraw a notice to file for a director!
