Self assessment filing: a survey for tax agents

printer Mail

Tax agents are being asked to complete a short survey on the filing of individuals’ self assessment returns.

HMRC is interested to know why many agents still file some SA returns on paper, and aims to find out more about peaks in online filing to see if more could be done encourage a more even spread of submissions through the filing period.

The survey has been set up by HMRC in association with the professional bodies involved in Working Together. It will run until 26 November.

‘You’ll appreciate that HMRC may not be able to make all the changes we'd like. Nonetheless, agent feedback should help flag the key issues and possibly highlight simple measures that can make a difference,’ the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland said in a note to members.
