HMRC are at it again!
I’ve touched upon this before but I thought I would mention it again due to recent headlines involving yet again Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs – they love a bit of press don’t they!
As you know they have been granted permission by the Treasury [from 2015] to dip into your bank account and remove money that you owe them. This has obviously not gone down well; especially with certain organisations saying this should not be allowed to be taken forward.
So what’s being done about this? Well an e-petition is being passed from pillar to post urging the government to withdraw its proposal; the public are really up in arms about this. As I said before if they were doing their job properly would they have to go to these extreme lengths? Surely there must be other ways to tackle non-payment from their citizens?
Whether you decide to sign this e-petition is your business but never put yourself in a position where you owe the tax man anything. Get yourself a qualified accountant so this won’t happen but whether you choose AIMS is up to you - but we can guarantee that we will get it right for you.
If you like the way we think – you will like the way we work.
AIMS Accountants for Business are the largest independent association of professionally qualified accountants in the UK specialising in accountancy for small, local and independent businesses.
AIMS are no ordinary accountants and we are more than just number crunchers!

It just goes to show what this country and its governments policy's are all about. As if business owners aren't under enough pressure already. Still i'm not surprised !! It seems to me that when it comes to the treasury and the government they can do and act in a way that is tantamount to legalised theft. They should look closer to home and start with proper investigations into the 'Banks' and how they have repeatedly destroyed this country systematically. Time for a reality check i think !!!
