HM REVENUE & CUSTOMS has launched a blog in order to improve the way it works with taxpayers and practitioners.
The Agent Engagement Team’s blog, at https://taxagents.blog.gov.uk/, provides a channel to communicate about joint HMRC and agent consultative meetings; the rollout of HMRC’s Tax Agent Strategy; improvements to HMRC services; the services available for agents.
HMRC director for business tax customers and strategy Theresa Middleton said: “Over the next couple of years HMRC is introducing new digital services for customers and their agents. As part of this, there is a lot of joint working taking place. We involve and consult with agents and their representatives in many different ways. The aim is to keep people up to date through regular blogging and to have a more immediate way of getting agents’ views.”
