My client had not submitted any of his self assessment tax returns. Finally he got around to filing the outstanding returns in 2010. We had confirmation for some shortly after but for others we heard nothing from HMRC. Recently (2 years after we had made the original submission) we received a letter from HMRC asking us to complete a questionnaire and tick a box that best describes why we decided to submit the returns.
The options are :
Accountancy or professional advice
The letter states it is to help improve their compliance procedures. Has anyone else recevied such a letter? Is this a prelude to an investigation?
