Tax chats, with your friendly local tax authority

From the Daily Mash (satire): "YOUR tax bill can be negotiated over a cup of tea and a chocolate Hobnob, officials have confirmed."  That's because:
Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs revealed that tax laws are all very well, but what really matters is having a nice chat about how much you think you should pay.
But don't get too excited:
The spokesman added: “Oh Christ, I’m really sorry, but I’ve just realised I should have said that ‘tax chats’ are only available to large corporations.
Another sign of the widespread effect on public perception of the Starbucks approach to taxation; more at the link.
