Updated HMRC Tax Agent Toolkits

Employment issues and capital gains first to be refreshed in 2016

HMRC has recently updated the following toolkits:

Expenses and benefits from employment

National insurance contributions and statutory payments

Chargeable gains for companies

Capital gains tax for trusts and estates

HMRC’s toolkits provide guidance on areas of error frequently seen in tax returns. They are primarily aimed at agents and advisers, though they are available to anyone. You do not have to use the toolkits, or tell HMRC if you have used one. There is more information in our
TAXtools 5 publication.

The tax agent blog highlights the changes to the employment toolkits and asks for comments on agents’ experiences. Do let HMRC know if you find toolkits useful as checklists or training aids. The Tax Faculty would also like to know your views – post a comment below.
