HMRC agent update

Working Together – find out about this partnership between HMRC and professional bodies, which looks for ways to improve HMRC’s operations for the benefit of tax agents, their clients’ and HMRC.

This includes Talking Points – weekly online meetings focusing on topics agents have highlighted they are interested in, or emerging issues that HMRC identify as impacting on agents. If you’d like to join a Talking Points session, email the Agent Engagement Team mailbox.

Agent Account Managers provide a service to help agents resolve client-specific issues. The agent account managers act as an intermediary between agents and HMRC where the normal communication channels have broken down.
