Tightening up on tax deferral arrangements

Press reports indicated HMRC has rejected more than 6,000 time-to-pay appeals over the last 12 months.

This is a small proportion of the 220,000 arrangements put in place but does represent a real problem for a lot of businesses.

HMRC has, however, warned action would be taken against businesses that default on payment plans. Such businesses 'should expect HMRC to take firm action to recover the debt.'

I think that counts as 'you have been warned'!
