HMRC have been trialling a new approach to enquiries, known as the Single Compliance Process (SCP).
Following feedback from the trial HMRC have now agreed that the opening letter, which advises the taxpayer that they are to be subject to the SCP, will give the taxpayer seven days to tell HMRC if they wish to deal directly with the matter themselves. If the taxpayer does not reply, HMRC will contact the taxpayer’s agent within 14 days to progress the case. If contact or progress cannot be made, then HMRC will go back to the taxpayer.
If you receive a letter advising that you are to be subject to a SCP then do please get in touch so we can deal with this matter on your behalf.
