Business rates are criminally high Watch
Weak business owners put up with the constant abuse they receive from the council and HMRC. HMRC constantly asks for things that they have no legal right to ask for, e.g. Z reports. If people stopped being so weak and docile and refused to do anything that the do not have a legal obligation to do, maybe business profits would go up.
In the last ten years I have had one request to review re all my clients, a routine vat visit due to that business having an initial vat repayment upon registration for vat, HMRC visits are very uncommon, in fact HMRC enquiries appear far less common than in the past.
A business has a legal requirement to keep certain records and HMRC, following correct process, have a right to view same.
What is the issue, given we have say self assessment re income tax should HMRC not have a right to check that submitted figures are correct?
