Barton John V

HMRC are now "targetting" particular types of business which they believe are more likely to "break the rules". However, the standards of efficiency at HMRC continue to plummet to unacceptable "wooden spoon" performance levels. John adopts a robust approach to unjustified HMRC attacks and has a comprehensive knowledge of claiming compensation from HMRC for the professional and other costs which arise from inept work by HMRC. John has received a phone call very recently from HMRC, apologising for their incompetence, advising that a compensation cheque is being sent to the client for over £1,900 (full reimbursement of the accountancy fees) in a case in which he achieved success at the independent Tax Tribunal.
