Its' aim is to promote efficient, orderly and fair financial markets and help retail financial service consumers get a fair deal.

Inland Revenue's Internet service for self assessment. In common with most Government sites it looks as though it was designed by an undertaker. However, once we had gone through the long winded verification process, we did manage to pay our personal tax in minutes without the site crashing which was great.

Sadly the site is still a work in progress if you have a partnership or a trust. Incredibly these organisational forms still require third party software to enter their accounts. Remarkably HMRC seem quite happy with this situation!

Although the staff are very polite and friendly, it takes an age to get them to act on any problems. That is if you haven't died waiting for the phone to be answered. And when you go through the options (press 1, press 2 and so on) you often end up back where you started from. They seem to run a postcode lottery as to how long it takes to get any action from them but it you owe them any money, you get a letter threatening court action the next day. On the plus side when you go their and see them face to face the staff do try to fix the issues you have quickly and professionally.
