During the last year, the public have been seeking reassurance that big business has been paying tax due to the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
In Glasgow, activists from UKUncut have been raising awareness of some of the businesses in our shopping streets which they believe are tax dodging.
Recently, an Inquiry by the Public Accounts Committee gathered evidence from David Hartnett, Head of the HMRC. Commenting on the committee findings, the chairwoman, Labour MP Margaret Hodge stated, "This report is a damning indictment of HMRC and the way its senior officials handle tax disputes with large corporations.”
I have submitted a letter of complaint to the HMRC seeking action in response to the committee findings.
