Doctors are trustworthy, aren’t they? But what about the VAT man? There was a time when you could approach HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for help and guidance, and be reasonably assured that you could rely on what you were told. But the experience of some taxpayers suggests that there is now confusion about what can and cannot be relied upon, and you may now have to insist on your own written ruling if you are to be protected.
