BEWARE OF SCAMS


Scams are on the rise especially as we get closer to the filing deadline and with the cost-of-living payments being made.


Things to be on the lookout for:


  • HMRC will never ask for your name, debit/credit card details or your bank details.

  • HMRC will not contact you via telephone, text or email stating you have a tax rebate, so please do not provide any information.

  • HMRC will never ask you to click on links via text or email.

  • HMRC will not offer rebates in the form of iTunes vouchers or any other voucher.

  • HMRC will not contact you asking you to fill out forms / apply for the cost-of-living payment.


HMRC will contact you via letter and more than likely send a copy to your accountant.


Sometimes if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. If ever in doubt give us a call, it’s best to be safe than sorry!


To report suspicious HMRC calls, emails, texts and phone calls please visit: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/hm-revenue-customs/contact/reporting-fraudulent-emails


or call the office on 01255 436000 to speak to a member of staff if you have any concerns.
