I read with interest, or should that be amazement, that HMRC has announced that employers will not be able to pay PAYE penalties with a personal credit card from 13 January 2018.

Surely the role of HMRC is to collect tax!
If someone is willing to settle debts, regardless of the source of funds, isn’t it HMRC’s remit to collect the tax on behalf of the Government.
Otherwise what is their job?
Personally I think they HMRC have lost the plot or they have some sort of hidden agenda which we can all speculate about.
Whatever is happening this is just a completely bonkers decision which would have cost money to implement!
I think it’s about time we all got together and challenged if HMRC are actually fulfilling their remit.
