I totally agree with Chris.I am a former HMIT but left the department in Jan 1983 and given the direction of travel of HMRC I am glad I left when I did.
I am very much in the winter of my career and have sadly watched,with great dismay,the decline in government services generally over the last 20 years in particular.The arrogance and utter incompetence now displayed by HMRC beggars belief.
As accountants we probably all could complain on a weekly basis but it is simply too laborious and time consuming and usually not cost effective to do so.
As we all know there were numerous errors in last year's HMRC software so to discover several errors already this year is truly amazing!
I have now found an error in how HMRC calculate interest charges as they are failing to allocate tax payments in the most efficient manner.I have challenged the charge on a point of principle but what a hassle to do so!Needs another re-write of the software!
I need a drink but given the time of the morning I will have to settle for a cup of tea!
