A new form has been published for use by taxpayers who want an agent to deal with HMRC on their behalf in relation to the High-Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC).

An agent can be authorised by a taxpayer to deal with HMRC and the HICBC in one of three ways:

  • Online through the government gateway.
  • Using an interactive online version of form CH995 which is then printed and posted to HMRC.
  • Using the postal form CH995.

If using the government gateway, a taxpayer can track the progress of the authorisation.

HMRC originally stated that you must still provide a 64-8 by post if you are using the government gateway or online version of form CH995. It has now been clarified in updated guidance that you do not need to submit 64-8 if a taxpayer just wants to authorise an advisor for the HICBC.

Wouldn’t it be great and think how much TIME it would SAVE you if someone:

  • READ all the latest tax news, case decisions, new legislation and articles in tax and then summarised them for you?
  • Only alerted you to things that are RELEVANT to you?

How about if that someone also:

  • Updated those summaries in REAL TIME for you
  • ADDED examples, planning points, toolkits and calculators, and
  • Linked all that information together and also provided you with CPD?

Thousands of firms of accountants and advisers are already using www.rossmartin.co.uk as their primary TAX resource.
