With winter just around the corner, practitioners caught in lengthy investigations will soon get the opportunity to vent their frustrations at the Inland Revenue by splattering their friendly inspector with a snowball. Taking Stock, however, could never condone physical violence. And so we are happy to offer a visual alternative. A Lancashire-based firm of chartered accountants has provided a handy illustration of how Hector would look after being dealt a chilling blow. But there's nothing below the belt about this mock-up. Bury-based Downham Train Epstein is using the image to advertise its 'Low-balling Hector' seminar on 16 November which details the support that its consulting group offers for tax investigations. The firm plans to outline Special Compliance Office procedures, Revenue techniques and approaches to tax investigations to help practitioners involved in this area. So now you won't need to hurl a snowball at a Revenue official, you can simply look at this picture and feel the frustration ebb away. It's not quite the same is it?
