HMRC - Be Cyber Aware

Alison Jessop is a Tax Consultant based in our Exmouth office, and has over 30 years’ of experience in Personal Tax.

Alison specialises in completion of Personal Income Tax returns and Income Tax Repayment Claim forms, including those with Investment portfolios, Capital Gains and rental income. She is able to submit the Tax Returns to HM Revenue & Customs online, claim tax refunds and agree tax liabilities with the Revenue, as well as completing Trust Returns, submitting them online and agreeing tax liabilities and tax pools for Discretionary Trusts.

With so many transactions taking place online, fraudsters are unfortunately taking advantage of this technology and are targeting people with seemingly genuine HMRC correspondence via email or text.

Alison has found a really useful article Don’t take the bait, be cyber aware”, (written by Colin Ford on a HMRC Government website) detailing advice on what to do to keep you and your personal information safe, if you should be contacted in this way. It lets you know that “HMRC will never notify you of a tax rebate by email or text. And we <HMRC> will not ask you to disclose personal or payment information by email or text”.

I am sharing this article as, I too, know of Clients, Friends and Family that have received very convincing, fake emails from HMRC and have asked my opinion, which would always be.....Do not open them!”
