Taxman under fire again.

Self-assessment is creating more and more problems for business and accountants rather than improving as it becomes more established, according to a survey published this week by the ACCA. Undertaken in June it shows more incorrect tax demands have been issued since the same survey carried out in February (June 85%, Feb 67%) and more delays have been experienced in processing returns (June 84%, Feb 71%). Moreover, more returns have been lost by the Inland Revenue (June 66%, Feb 42%) and more erroneous late filing reminders issued (June 86%, Feb 62%).
