The taxman has backed down on plans to make unannounced visits to private
In updating its powers HM Revenue & Customs had suggested it wanted to be
able to make visits to private homes without a search warrant.
But in its latest set of consultation papers it stated that visists to
private residences should only be by agreement or with a warrant.
Grant Thornton national tax office head Francseca Lagerberg welcomed the
statement, saying that its earlier plans had caused a ‘furore’.
