Revenue's task is no joke.

Accountants are not the humourless bunch that the outside world sometimes thinks they are – but then you knew that already.

However, if anyone is still in any doubt, then show them Taking Stock on the back cover of this week’s issue. The dry and witty responses that our competition to think of a new name for the Inland Revenue has elicited should open a few closed minds.

But there is a serious point here, too. Most of the funniest suggestions are derogatory – which means the Revenue clearly has a long way to go to convince accountants that the proposal to revamp its image will go hand-in-hand with improvements in other areas.

And if the Revenue struggles to convince professionals that it has changed its spots, it certainly won’t be easy to convince the public.
