Inland Revenue's Internet service for self assessment. In common with most Government sites it looks as though it was designed by an undertaker. However, once we had gone through the long winded verification process, we did manage to pay our personal tax in minutes without the site crashing which was great.

Sadly the site is still a work in progress if you have a partnership or a trust. Incredibly these organisational forms still require third party software to enter their accounts. Remarkably HMRC seem quite happy with this situation!

Avoid the ticket counter and go self serve. Very quick reliable and helpful staff had me in and out in 2 minutes to buy envelope and return goods with a prepaid amazon return. And at lunchtime in the city on pension day!

My local post office (sadly not open at weekends). In the many visits I've made, the staff have universally been helpful and friendly. It can't be helped that the PO gets busy sometimes, but there is a fair ticketed queuing system and lots of self-service kiosks (with manned assistance) should you prefer that. The place is always well maintained and the seats are plush and comfy. If the wait's going to be long, you can take a ticket, then grab a coffee from EAT opposite, and return to relax with it while you wait.

Went in about 4pm today, was a very small queue. An extremely helpful woman asked what I needed and very efficiently and kindly helped me send a recorded delivery letter using the machine. Thank you Walworth Post Office!
