How do I close my Agents Services Account with HMRC

Didn't find your answer?

I have now retired and sold my small Practice and want to close my Agents Services Account with HMRC. I have looked through Home and Manage Account and can't see a link to do this. Could anyone help?

Enjoy your retirement Anne.
I can only think that the agent maintainer team, need to be contacted.
I'd suggest the address, in this;
"If you are a new agent and are applying for an Agent Code, or your name and/or address details change, write to the Agent Maintainer team: HMRC, CAAT, Longbenton, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE98 1ZZ. Taxpayer records are updated automatically for SA and COTAX – but for other systems you need to give details of each client".

I kept mine open so that I could complete my own tax returns.

That's an expensive solution to a non-problem isn't it it?
