As you know, HMRC is currently conducting a campaign of delivery of Accelerated Payment Notices on an industrial scale. We are receiving very worrying feedback from readers informing us that they are in receipt of APNs for tax years where, as far as they are aware, no open enquiry exists (a prerequisite for the lawful issuance of an APN). We are hearing from accountants about figures as high as 40% of APNs where the existence of a valid enquiry is in doubt.
For this reason, we are supporting the petition started by our friends at BIG GROUP.
You will find this petition here.
Please take one minute of your time to contribute to it, and please pass the word around. Thank you.
