Chance are they will already know our bank account details anyway, this has certainly been the case when RBS volunteered info from my account of an interest payment I received in a previous tax year, the tax was deducted at source, now I’m battling with HMRC over late penalty fines which are now getting ridiculous. Not to mention repetitive phone calls to the revenue. Almost two years down the line and still at it!!. Grrrr.
Good to know this, although this has been the case for a while now.
Asillahi. What an idiotic thing to say.
