HMRC calls in the debt collectors
Repo men may end up chasing late tax payers
HM Revenue and Customs is experimenting with the use of debt collection

KPMG tax partner Paul Harrison called on HMRC to exercise sensitivity in its
attempts to recover unpaid amounts tax. “HMRC needs to make sure they apply
quality controls and great reassurance before action is taken.”
