Invitation to Join the Agent Forum?

Had an email this morning...

Didn't find your answer?

Had an email this morning from HMRC telling me about a post on the tax agent's blog. This invites agents "All agents, who are a member of a professional body" to join HMRC's Agent Forum.  I have responded asking why not all agents. Surely those of us QBE (and maybe even used to work there) have a view too?

Just curious - is this a move to excluding some agents from future developments ?

I've asked the same question without a satisfactory answer. However, they are planning on opening it up.

My understanding is that all agents are excluded from future developments it's just that the QBE ones are now saved from having to talk to a brick wall.

We are joking about this but it just might be the start of something more sinister. Ages ago when I attended an Agents Working together meeting with HMRC (remember those meetings?!) we were told that only certain agents would be permitted full use of HMRC's systems in the future. There was going to be some kind of 'hierarchy'. Not heard anything since.

Without agents, the HMRC will collapse because 97% of taxpayers can't deal with the online stuff (though 99% of the 97% think they can).

Despite being a member of this forum I received this email and wondered if you had to re-register.

I don't think I will bother because there is no free exchange of views or information - it is totally controlled, and censored by HMRC
