HMRC Launches New Online Customer Forum

HMRC Launches New Online Customer Forum

HMRC has launched a new set of Community Forums designed to make it easier for taxpayers to get their tax questions answered.

If you have a question about property income, VAT, expenses, Making Tax Digital, Self Assessment, Brexit or a whole range of other topics, you can submit a question to be answered by an HMRC expert.

The forums are split into a range of different subject areas and taxpayers can use a search function to search for a question that may have already been answered.

HMRC has also launched an extensive Knowledge Base where you can find information on a full range of tax topics.

To interact with and contribute to the Community Forums, you must first register or sign in with HMRC.

Tax agents can also access the Agent Forums by requesting access on their profile page once signed in.

Miles Grady, Director of CloudAccountant.co.uk, said: “With our complicated tax system, you often find that good questions receive unsatisfactory answers. HMRC’s helplines can be helpful, but from experience, the operators sometimes find it difficult to provide black and white answers.

“These new community forums should provide answers that you can rely on. But the best way to manage tax affairs is still with a trustworthy accountant.

“Using a cloud accounting system like Xero and FreeAgent along with a reliable adviser will make your tax life easier. And your accountant will be able to suggest tax efficiency savings that you may not have even thought about.”
