HMRC ads too scary for tax advisers

TS has seen some scary things in its time, from Keith Chegwin naked to the look on Eric Anstee’s face when the ICAEW/CIPFA merger vote results were revealed. These images apparently pale in comparison to the sight of Adam Hart-Davies, (the bloke off the taxman’s ads) falling through a big sand timer. Well that’s according to two tax advisers who lodged complaints with the Advertising Standards Agency that the ad would put the public off. Thankfully the ASA kicked the claim into touch. Now if they had threatened to put non-taxpayers into big hourglasses, cover them in sand and squeeze them through the waist of the timers , then that could possibly have generated some pantwetting amongst taxpayers. Don’t rule it out…
