HMRC have updated their online guidance on disclosing unpaid tax to include information on authorising an agent to deal with a disclosure made through the Digital Disclosure Service (DDS).
The DDS gives individuals and companies a chance to bring their affairs up to date in a simple, straightforward way. Anyone who owes tax on income or gains must tell HMRC about any unpaid tax. They will then have 90 days to calculate and pay what is owed.
- How to make a voluntary disclosure to HMRC explains how individuals and companies not eligible for an HMRC campaign can make a voluntary disclosure to HMRC.
- Let Property Campaign: your guide to making a disclosure explains who can use the Let Property Campaign and how to make a disclosure to HMRC for unpaid tax. The online guidance has been updated to include details of a new form (form COMP1a), which can be used by clients to authorise agents to deal directly with HMRC about a disclosure made using the DDS. Agents should use the DDS to notify HMRC of a client’s disclosure.
