TS recalls Pet's star Healy's close links to HMRC
Tim Healy's recent run-in with the taxman isn't his only dealing with HMRC, TS recalls...
ONCE AND FOR ALL it has been proved that TS has a brilliant memory.
Auf Wiedersehen Pet and Benidorm star Tim Healy has been in the tax pages for winning a tribunal over expenses that he claimed against his tax bill.
This sent TS’s synapses into overdrive. Yes, it was the very same actor who’d been provided voiceover work by the taxman back in 2005, where he encouraged brickies, labourers and contractors to make sure they were up to speed with the then ‘revamped’ version of the Construction Industry Scheme.
When checking this out with HMRC, it was gobsmacked at the depths the recesses of TS’ mind reached.
Of course, asking TS to repay that tenner can lead to a bit of ‘sketchy memory syndrome’.
