Useful Tips When Contacting HMRC
Often, people contact HMRC regarding overpayments, specific changes or regarding incorrect advice given to them by HMRC. It is very important to have evidence of this when complaining about inaccurate information or disputing an overpayment. To do this it’s important to keep track of all phone conversations made to HMRC, the date, name of the person you spoke to and what they said, to refer to as evidence if anything were to go wrong.
Always send letters as recorded delivery meaning HMRC need to sign for the letter so there is a record of whether they received it. It is good practice anyway to keep a copy of any letters sent to companies just in case anything were to go wrong. Keep a copy of all extra information or letters sent with your letter, like tax credit forms and notices.
