HMRC PUTTING A PRICE ON SEEKING ACCESS TO JUSTICE!
Wow, can you believe the current stance from the HMRC on people wishing to challenge payment requests for outstanding taxes that the HMRC feel are owed.
Challenge us on and win - No Penalty.
Challenge us and lose - 60% Penalty on top of the amount you feel that you do not owe!!
Lord Forsyth stated, 'That is putting a price on seeking access to Justice'.
Intimidation tactics put together to frighten people into paying up what they probably do not owe. Unethical behaviour by the HMRC.
