There have been a number of articles in the press recently regarding the problems in getting through to the HMRC Tax helpline. Apparently only 1 in 4 people carry on holding to try and get through to someone, with only 74% of callers managing to get through to speak to someone in 2011/12.
This is in addition to the issues highlighted over the last year regarding HMRC errors with tax calculations, tax codes, penalty notices being incorrectly issued, and people being told the wrong information.
It is for these reasons that getting a second option and using the services of a professional adviser, either an accountant, financial adviser or even both that could save you time and money.
We can provide a review of your taxation and continue this service at your review every year to ensure that you don’t end up with a surprise letter from the HMRC if they make a mistake.
