HMRC staff survey hits “technical error”

HM Revenue & Customs’ staff survey has kept the headline writers busy in recent years, so when news reached us via accounting uber-blogger Ken Frost that another survey questionnaire had been sent out on Monday and had hit an IT hitch, well I had to find out the deal.

An HMRC spokeswoman told me there “was no IT problem” sending it out but instead a “technical problem” affecting the first batch of a thousand or so emails, which were resent on the day. Please don’t ask me what that means.

Hopefully, with no more “technical problems” the survey results will be published in the not too distant future. Although HMRC might wish it to be far-flung.
