HMRC update guidance on genuine HMRC contact and recognising phishing emails
Released 8 August 2018
HMRC have updated guidance on genuine HMRC contact to include a telephone survey of partnerships and corporate bodies starting in August 2018.
Genuine HMRC contact and recognising phishing emails and texts explains how to recognise when contact from HMRC is genuine, and how to recognise phishing or bogus emails and text messages. The guidance has been updated at section 1.1 to include details about a new telephone survey of partnerships and corporate bodies. During August and September 2018, independent research agency Ipsos MORI will contact businesses by telephone to carry out a survey for HMRC. The research agency will contact a random sample of partnerships and incorporated bodies. The research will help HMRC to find out businesses’ understanding of legislation relating to their tax governance. Participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous.
