Taxman doesn't want you asking about Brexit

Taxman doesn't want you asking about Brexit
28 June 2016

More Brexit news (sorry, it really isn't going away any time soon), and this time, to HMRC.

They've had to put a message on their answering service in a bid to deter everyone from ringing them up about about the result of the EU Referendum.

If you call the tax office, you'll be told: "There are no changes to any taxes, tax credits, child benefits or other HMRC services as a result of the vote on the EU referendum. Everything is continuing as normal. No laws have changed. There is no need to contact HMRC as a result of the EU referendum."

Obviously, there's been a lot of worry regarding the vote, or people just curious to see if there's any changes.

If you've been wondering, you don't have to ring up HMRC now. The message above is all you need to know presently.

This is because the UK hasn't actually left the EU or even started proceedings to leave, so at the moment, everything is exactly as it was last week. Well, apart from everyone shouting at each other on the internet.

If there are any changes to the way British people do their taxes, then rest assured, HMRC will send out correspondence about new rules, new rates, or anything else.
