Tax bodies partly back HMRC self-serve

Tax practitioners have given ‘heavily qualified’ support to HM Revenue & Customs plans for a system of enrolment of professional tax agents.

The two main professional tax bodies say HMRC’s proposals are ‘moving in the right direction’ but there are a number of ‘fundamental issues’ that need to be addressed first, including the need for independent oversight of the process of suspending and disenrolling agents, who has access and security.

The Chartered Institute of Taxation and the Association of Taxation Technicians set out their views in their joint comments to HMRC on the consultation ‘Establishing the future relationship between the tax agent community and HM Revenue & Customs, which sets out a roadmap for the future relationship between HMRC and agents.

The document sets out proposals for ‘self-serve’ by enrolled agents who would have a greater access to HMRC systems, together with the monitoring of agents and disenrolling of those with poor performance.
