    Default HMRC tax hotline for psychopaths

    How easy would it be for a psychopathic person to cause a world of pain for a contractor? E.g if they call the HMRC hotline and claim that you're fiddling expenses or billing as outside of IR35 but actually inside. Is it that easy to trigger a tax inspection?

    Even if you are squeeky clean it'd still waste lots of time and money.

    What an excellent idea. Let's make a list of CUKers to target.

    That's a federal organisation - you need to contact the relevant Cantonal Steueramt.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    One thinks so too*, and she sounds ghastly. Full disclosure, OP, then you shall have my answer.

    * - or a bloke. One can't be too judgemental in these days of poofs and whatnot.

    Although the P stands for pan sexual and not pedo as many people would have you believe.
