There are currently zero published NRCGT tribunal cases for January 2020 on the Gov' website.
If we assume Sir Jon Thompson's nose grows one foot for each month where there are zero published cases, he is currently walking around with a 13 foot hooter. I find it very difficult to understand how HMRC can still claim they are treating taxpayers even-handedly as required by the Taxpayers Charter (yes, I agree my message is stuck in the same repetitive groove, but nobody has been able to explain Goochiegate and all available statistics suggest HMRC has made a U-turn of Copse corner proportions).
I found the following in this month's edition of TaxAdviser (my bold):
In January, the CIOT also wrote to Jim Harra, HMRC's Chief Executive (Sir Jon's replacement), to express our concerns around HMRC's approach in First-tier Tribunal cases, in particular, that the performance of HMRC's representatives has been below the standard expected of a public body. We have been disappointed to note how often the presiding judge has had to reprimand HMRC recently; for example, for failing to draw the tribunal's attention to relevant cases, relying on unpublished cases, acting unreasonably in alleging fraud, and advancing unconvincing arguments.
I am certainly unconvinced by HMRC's assurance that they have dealt with NRCGT taxpayers even-handedly (as a starting point they are currently having to wait 14 weeks for HMRC to answer correspondence).
