With so much staff resource redeployed by HMRC to providing Covid-19 support, it is hardly surprising there was a sharp drop in Code of Practice 9 (CoP9) investigations opened during the 2020/21 tax year. The total opened of 411 was a drop of over 250 from the year before.

However, HMRC did manage to close the highest number of CoP9 investigations for some time. 918 cases were closed during 2020/21, compared to the 876 closed in 2019/20. As you might expect, the yield recorded was also higher at £240,998,974.

What can we expect to have been achieved by HMRC in 2021/22?

The results are due within the next 6 weeks and may well show a further decline in the number of cases opened, particularly as resources continued to be stretched within HMRC and the number of requests to enter the Contractual Disclosure Facility dropped by nearly a half during 2020/21 to 79, compared to 142 the year before.
