HMRC has issued an updated version of their online guidance on Genuine HMRC contact and recognising phishing emails and texts. The guidance provides a current list of genuine messages from HMRC. This includes: email messages, text messages and telephone contacts from HMRC.
The latest updates on the list include information on a research project being carried out to see how businesses are preparing for Brexit. HMRC has confirmed that Ipsos MORI are carrying out this research and you may receive a letter and phone call asking your business to take part in the survey. We are sure the responses would make for interesting reading!
HMRC is also working with IFF Research in seeking businesses' views towards HMRC's digital transformation and separately emailing taxpayers to invite them to take part in an online survey to help evaluate changes made to the Basic PAYE tools software and accompanying guidance. Finally, please note that letters from HMRC’s Debt Enforcement ADT unit titled 'Immediate action required – please pay' are genuine.
Although all these communications are genuine, taxpayers should still be wary of receiving messages that are purported to come from HMRC. Fake email and text messages can appear to be genuine, but clicking on a link from these messages can result in personal information being compromised and the possibility of computer viruses affecting your computer or smartphone. If you are unsure as to the validity of any message, it should not be opened until the sender can be verified. The validity of letters from HMRC can also be checked by contacting HMRC directly by telephone to confirm if a letter is genuine.
