Draft Taxpayers' Charter 'inadequate': CIoT

Institute disappointed in content of draft Charter

The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIoT) has labelled the draft Taxpayers’
Charter as ‘inadequate,’ arguing it’s too heavily geared towards HMRC rather
than users of the department’s services.

The CIoT has long been campaigning for a Charter and has openly expressed its
disappointment with the draft as set out in the current HMRC consultative
document.

Nick Goulding, president of the CIoT, said: ‘We can completely understand
that the Charter should have regard to the ‘HMRC Vision’ and that the Charter
should work for HMRC staff as well as for their customers. But its main
orientation must be for users of HMRC’s services; it seems to us that the
current draft has lost sight of this aim.’
