Transfer of agent authorisation codes

How to transfer agent authorisation codes

Didn't find your answer?

We have recently acquired another accountancy practice and HMRC have written to say they cannot transfer the existing agent authorisations due to GDPR.  Does anyone know a way to do this as the alternative is extremely time consuming. Apparently it used to be a letter to HMRC central agent team(which I tried) but GDPR not allowing this anymore....Thank you.

There used to be a way back in the old goverment Gateway login days where you could appoint another agent as a team member and transfer clients over to them. But I'm not sure if this can still be done or whether that would also move any 64 8 statuses over.

Other than that it's a new authorisation process for each client

Just a thought - not sure if it is relevant or appropriate
Did you take over a practice inside a limited company ?
If so keep it as a separate entity within your practice with it's existing agent's coding and leave the clients as they are. Not sure this can work or suit you but perhaps worth consideration - or not !!
