This Friday is tax return final submission day so let me share a fact about tax returns that few people seem to know.
Every single person who applies to have a tax refund on their tax return has it paid to them. That's because it is HMC policy to pay refunds first and ask questions later.
Can you imagine any other organisation doing that? No, nor can I.
In that case just think how much HMRC could save if they just employed enough people to do some checking first.
Now do you get what I mean about the new C word - 'collection'?
