HMRC Warning on Scams

HMRC have updated their guidance on scams. HMRC have become aware of a new ruse to persuade unsuspecting taxpayers to complete a form detailing their bank or credit card details. The form implies that a tax refund may be due and that this will be paid straight into their bank account.

Taxpayers need to be vigilant about any emails asking for bank details.
