So it appears that HMRC, by their action, are confirming that b-i-k legislation is there to raise tax, not to equalise the treatment between those who receive employment benefits and those who provide them from their own pockets?

From HMRC's perspective (it seems), anything that distances a taxpayer from their agent / advisor is a good thing. If they wanted to reduce professional input, they might want to improve their own accuracy (PAYE Coding etc etc etc).
Their marginalisation of agents is evident through the whole digital project. Worrying......

We have a reverse situation.
Client who is under SA (and has been for some years) receives a calculation including jobseekers in the income. Turns out that they had applied for jobseekers but had been turned down, However HMRC had used the amount applied for as an "estimate" of income received......
Pretty tricky on several levels and considering a fomal complaint.....
