Last week, we highlighted that the HMRC is embracing modern technology and trialling sending text messages warning taxpayers to pay up. In contrast, it seems HMRC has also gone back to basics and is now sticking handwritten post-it notes on letters to encourage tax avoiders to pay.
But what’s next? If it reverts back to tried and tested communication tools could we see the revival of a handwritten letter; a telegram; or even a town crier to remind tax payers to cough up?
