ACCA Hopes That HMRC Is Geared Up To Deal With Tax Queries In Light Of PAYE Error
Chas Roy Chowdhury, the ACCA’s Head of Taxation said that “HMRC’s recent announcement is worrying for many ordinary tax payers. While it is important we pay the right amount of tax at the right time, it is also important that our tax authority bills us correctly and keeps correct records. It is also important that HMRC is geared up to deal with this mistake. I am concerned that they will not have the number of staff available to deal with queries from those who don’t want to use HMRC’s website. This will only add to people’s frustration. This issue highlights the problems caused by the complexity of the UK’s tax system. Only today we also hear that millions of pounds are owed to those who do their own tax returns due to errors in the self assessment system. Self assessment tax payers and employers are clearly having problems with tax codes. I know that many will be asking whether they can trust the UK\’s tax regime.”
