Protection for the Vulnerable from HMRC Helping Themselves to Your Money

HMRC have added a safety net for the vulnerable to their controversial system of taking money direct from bank accounts.

They have just announced that they will not take direct from a bank where the taxpayer is disabled, unwell or suffering the effects of other personal issues such as a bereavement.

If you are aware that HMRC are about to take directly from your bank account and you think you might have a condition that qualifies you as vulnerable, you may be able to ask them to hold off.
