I spent the best part of last week attending ATT classes for the first time.
They were hard work; intellectually bruising, even.
So much so that my nocturnal dreams after each session were a chaos of numbers and percentages.
So much to understand! So much to remember! So many sums! Such a sore head!
By the end of the three days, I was cream-crackered.
I'll be glad to return to work tomorrow. After all, I need a rest.
Despite the taxation-based entropy within my mind, I still enjoyed - much to my smug pleasure - a moment of soothing clarity when the teacher was discussing self assessment.
Last month, she told the class, the deadline was extended.
Not so, I told her very quietly from the front row of desks. (I'm not a swot. I just have trouble seeing OHP screens from any sort of distance.)
She retorted that she was certain it had been extended. At least, that's what she'd read in The Times.
So, there you are: even tax tutors were taken in by the HMRC's arch response to the recent SA Online debacle.
A job even better done by the Revenue's press office than we first realised, then.
