~Paul's review of HMRC customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's HMRC customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
~Paul: Spent * minutes on hold and then hung up - disgusting! That will have cost me at least ** pence which I could have used towards a multipack bag of monster munch and spent that wasted time eating them. Very disappointed with Her Majesty for letting this happen.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting HMRC. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a HMRC problem?
~Paul: I'd give them a three out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
~Paul: I'd give them a four out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about HMRC's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~Paul: For that I would say three out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other HMRC customers?
~Paul: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for HMRC to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from ~Paul taken from his HMRC customer service problem that occurred on November 14th, 2017.
