Hartnett jumps Arctic gun

Everyone is eagerly awaiting HMRC’s decision on Arctic Systems, and nobody seems to know when it is coming.

That includes, it seems, Dave Hartnett, director general of HM Revenue & Customs.

In a meeting earlier today, Hartnett, TS is told, was asked when the decision was out. Hartnett replied it was already out – ‘it came out yesterday’, apparently.

Not according to us, Dave. Still waiting, as it happens.

UPDATE: The rev is going to appeal the ruling, or at least appeal the decision to refuse an appeal on Arctic. Perhaps it’s not that much of a surprise that Hartnett wanted the news out earlier.
