Deloitte spells confusion for HMRC

You would think the taxman would know a thing or two about Deloitte, the second largest firm in the UK. Remember them? They do a lot of tax advice.

But in a recently released freedom of information disclosure, HMRC seems oddly unable to spell their name.

Listing the largest recipients of consultancy contracts, it refers to a Deloite & Touche (paid £1.2m in 2004/5) and a Delloite MCS (paid a total of almost £20m by Customs & Excise over the three years the disclosure refers to).

TS would be the last person to throw stones about mistakes. But spelling it two different ways in the same document? And both of them wrong?
