HMRC has opened a compliance check against a clients self-assessment tax return (tax year ending 5th April 2016). This was due to multiple directorships and only one source of income which was a salary from one of the limited companies. The clients' receipts from the company match the amounts declared on the self-assessment tax return. Everything else matches what was declared.
However, HMRC now wants to actually see the salary payments into his personal bank account. Is this normal? The client understandably doesn't want to print off 12 months worth of bank statements for an account that he shares with his wife and runs his household through (its a lot of paper). If it is normal, can he just print off the pages with the payments on so there are only 12 pages instead of close to 80?
Its the first Compliance Check I have had to deal with so not sure what HMRC's boundaries are.
Thanks in advance.
