Taking Stock - We don't all share same e-enthusiasm.
Tony Blair is continually spewing his desire to see the UK as the leading e-commerce country. With this in mind it was interesting to hear KPMG e-tax partner Gary Harley tell an audience at a recent Visa sponsored conference of how he rang Customs to check whether e-mailed invoices were legal in the UK. It emerged that a flummoxed spokesman had to check this fact before calling him back. Not all of government shares our PM’s enthusiasm.
