HMRC Trawling for Sellers using Social Media


Pete

Recommended Posts

Came across this earlier today in a blog -

"HMRC probably knows more about you financially than you do!"
When it comes to social media, HMRC apparently scrapes public-facing social media websites.
If your Facebook profile is set to public and is listed in the likes of Google, you may not want to be posting about your expensive five-star holiday if you have any tax arrears.


Any micro-business using social media to sell their products and services from the kitchen table better make themselves aware to HMRC because Facebook pages are public, and they will find out what you're up to, then figure out how much money you're making.

Hmmm well after my tragic boating accident i need a rebate.

Always cast your vote - Spoil your ballot slip. Put 'Spoilt Ballot - I do not consent.' These votes are counted. If you do not do this you are consenting to the tyranny. None of them are fit for purpose. 
A tyranny relies on propaganda and force. Once the propaganda fails all that's left is force.

COVID-19 is a cover story for the collapsing economy. Green Energy isn't Green and it isn't Renewable.

may i also add that every single insurance company out there have a dedicated fraud department looking at social media for posts following P.I claims...

I have often been accused of too much of a rule follower - but lets be quite honest, HMRC are always in the know about what is meant to be paid to them and they will always catch you in time. 

Anyone who fudges the rules or their own books to make themselves pay less tax than they should is just asking for trouble.

HMRC have more legal powers than the police and the armed forces. They are right up the top of the tree, in the stakes to poke people right up the fartpipe!

Central bankers are politicians disguised as economists or bankers. They‚Äôre either incompetent or liars. So, either way, you‚Äôre never going to get a valid answer.‚ÄĚ - Peter Schiff

Sound money is not a guarantee of a free society, but a free society is impossible without sound money. We are currently a society enslaved by debt.

Pretty stupid to rely on this. 

Also, last thing I would want (and I would imagine lots of people too) is to have to defend yourself in court over this kind of situation. 

Just abide by the law and pay taxes honestly, is it that hard to do?

True.... but when they can arbitrarily change laws and retrospectively go back and get taxes I think its criminal... ūüôā¬†.... I wish I could go back and do that sometimes

Have you had any contact with a HMRC investigation?  They are ruthless. They have the power to demand every detail and proof of your income and expenditure, down to everything you spend of food etc, you name it. If it doesn't add up you are in the crapper.

Taxes are actually a bi product of a failed economic system, and the higher they go, the more failed the system is. If you didnt have central banks you wouldnt have taxes. We dont have central IT workers, we dont have central anything else except the central line that runs through london, Think long and hard about that!

Good. People who fiddle their taxes should have the decency to spend proceeds on the quiet, otherwise deserve anything coming to them.  

I agree. The multinationals and British monarchy should do more. I am sick of paying my share.

There have always been taxes with or without central banks. They are a consequence of governement, whatever form.  Now, there are taxes that come from poor economic principles, thats a very different case.

You're missing my point. If we had a sound economic system based on sound money, ie Mises, not the Keynesian drivel. Debt wouldnt be around and there would be no need to for anyone to pay taxes. Public Services would be treated as a business and therefore self sufficent and everyone prospers. The top 1% dont pay taxes - the game is rigged!

Your wasting your time, mate. This Keynesian nonsense is everywhere, its conditioned, regurgitated and became the primary mental process to understand the economy and history of money. Its incredible. I wouldnt mind paying tariffs for public services but war and financial services would need the consent of the people through bonds (not going to happen because thats predicated on keynesianism).

:wacko: Public services without any public funding from taxation?  Private roads, private police, private fire brigade, private refuse collection?  Schools, health, army all run as a business?  Does not sound like much fun, and nothing ecomomically sound about that. 

There's nothing "Keynesian" about having taxes and public expenditure, been going on forever.  This term seems thrown around as an insult without understanding what it is.  Certainly isnt what we have today, Keynes advocated paying back all the debt in short order after the economic stimulus had taken effect.

Its not the only option though as @Minimalist has mentioned a tarrif system could be a solution. The problem is the west doesnt now produce hardly anything now its all done in china. If we produced more goods and services we'd prosper, but we cant becuase we are enslaved in financial economic ponzi scheme. I gaurantee you the tariffs would be a lot cheaper if the mises model were adopted.
