Change of HMRC policy when writing to agents?

Has the policy of HMRC writing to agents changed at all?

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

We submitted an appeal against a late filing pnelaty back in August. We still haven't received a response, but on enquirig it turns out they have responded direct to the client. 

In the letter it states:

"We've changed the way we give our customers confidential information. We no longer write direct to an agent or authorised third party."

Have I missed something? When did it become HMRC policy not to respond to a registered agent?

Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes, often.
It seems HMRC will only be happy when they have removed us from the loop completely. I mean why would someone need an agent? They have a PTA ..... (cries into cup of tea!!)

Aaah.......so that's why I can't obtain any client authorisations, they don't want me to have any!

This is news to me. I've been getting direct responses from HMRC on client matters but it wouldn't surprise me if a local office has decided to adopt a 'new' approach to dealing with agents. If so, it's not right and it's certainly not fair to either the agent or client.
