HMRC Cost-Cutting Alarm

HMRC have recently announced that as part of the drive to save costs they plan to stop issuing copies to tax agents of some mail which is sent to you as the taxpayer.

We are not alone in being supportive of the need to make cuts in Government spending, but at the same time being alarmed that this measure will result in far more additional work for HMRC, you and us as your agents. It will potentially lead to additional costs in excess of the amounts saved.

At this stage we would simply ask you to kindly send to us a copy of all communications you receive direct from HMRC in case we find that we do not automatically receive a copy. We can then take the necessary action on your behalf as always.
