HMRC launches six toolkits to foil adviser error

Taxman releases new guides with helpful information including checklists, links to online guidance and examples of frequent errors and how to avoid them

The taxman has released six free toolkits to help advisers avoid common
errors when filing their clients’ returns.

The toolkits cover, Capital Gains Tax for land and buildings, Marginal Small
Companies’ relief, Private and Personal expenditure (Income Tax Self
Assessment), Trust and Estates, Capital Gains Tax for trust and estates
(supplement)
and capital Allowances for plant and machinery.

HMRevenue & Customs worked closely with advisers and the accountancy
professional bodies in developing the toolkits, which were pilot tested by
around 600 firms, tax practitioners and solicitors during the course of last
year.

Brian Redford, head of HMRC’s Business Engagement Team, said:

“The toolkits are free and easy to use. Agents do not have to use them but
because they are designed with the help of the agent community they are packed
with helpful information including checklists, links to online guidance and
examples of frequent errors and how to avoid them.”
