HMRC cuts counter-intuitive

The customary (and, it appears, cosmetic) consultation process has been completed, and the cuts in Revenue & Customs offices in Wales are to go through as announced in the summer.

This at a time when small businesses could really benefit from direct contact with Hector (and his female equivalent). The Revenue has gone to great lengths in the last decade to engage with taxpayers and this centralising move will set the process back, in such centres as Brecon, Bridgend, Carmarthen, Haverfordwest and Pembroke Dock. It appears that so far from reducing the impact, the consultation process has seen the addition of Aberystwyth, not a negligible town, to the list.
