HMRC consultation: Amendments to tax returns

Released 8 November 2018

HMRC have published a call for evidence on issues faced by taxpayers making an amendment to a tax return.

There are several different methods of making amendments to tax returns, which vary according to tax, value, accounting period and turnover. The Government recognises that as tax records will increasingly be held and submitted digitally, there is an opportunity to modernise the amendments process and create a better taxpayer experience. The Government will explore how tax returns are amended with a view to developing an amendments process that is simple and transparent. The call for evidence outlines the current position on amendments to tax returns and asks a series of direct questions to gather evidence on the issues taxpayers face when making an amendment to a tax return. The consultation closes at 11:45pm on 6 February 2019. Responses can be submitted by email to: or by writing to:

S1715, Harmonisation & Convergence/PDE
Floor 6 Central Mail Unit
Newcastle upon Tyne, NE98 1ZZ
