HM Revenue & Customs has started carrying out PAYE tax investigations remotely
It has been reported that HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has begun carrying out PAYE investigations remotely.
The investigation begins with a phone call, inviting the employer to complete a survey sent by email. There is a concern amongst accountants that the wording of some of these questions could trip up unwary employers and prompt full-scale tax enquiries.
If you receive a call relating to a PAYE tax investigation, please contact us for professional advice before you return any information to HMRC.
