Re: HMRC is badass, HMRC don't give a sh*t

They don't care about their 'customers', that's for sure. Twenty years ago, they sold all their buildings to a company in a tax haven and then leased them back.

"Further details of the contract cannot be uncovered from Mapeley Steps' accounts, because the firm is not UK registered and neither files financial reports nor does it pay tax in the UK. The accounts of Mapeley Limited, which manages the estate, show it made a loss in 2001, and therefore also paid no tax."

Trebles all round!
