What is the relationship between HMRC’s new initiative “HMRC is closing the net on tax dodgers” and “HMRC sees biggest digital self-assessment ever?” (A report published by HMRC on 2nd February 2015).
New technology, access to data and extra staff means HMRC can find tax dodgers easier than ever before.
During the week before having to submit our client’s self-assessment returns, I went to the cinema for a short break. As an avid cinemagoer, I took a cab to my favourite cinema VUE O2 in Finchley Road. Realising I had no cash on me, I asked the cab driver to stop at an ATM machine on the way. As soon as I withdrew the cash a message appeared on the screen. See image below.
