For once this isn't another rant about MTD itself ... just a reaction to the time I've wasted reading (& re-reading) recent publications from HMRC, like the one referenced above.
Sentences like "We are updating the ASA subscription journey with more service content to help agents understand how the information being supplies is used by HMRC" contain an obvious typo (there are many of these throughout the 10-page document) ... but, more importantly, I've no idea what a "subscription journey" is.
However my favourite (in this Further Updates - Summary of Changes section) is ... "Tax services hidden in expandable accordions so agents can choose what they want to see information on." Again I've no idea what an "expandable accordion" is (other than what used to be known colloquially as a 'squeeze-box'), but I'd like to order one if it can be used to hide Tax services within it!
The whole thing is littered with this gobbledydook ... e.g. "Improvements to the front-end customer journeys .. a change to the BTA to add a VAT tile, which will allow the customers more functionality for their VAT services"?!?
Is it my age (possibly)? Or is the communicative aspect of these documents now seen as an irrelevance?
