NEWS FROM THE TAX CHARITIES

We hope you’re all managing in these difficult times. Here is our latest update with some resources we hope you find helpful.

NEW! Tax triage guides for advice services

The tax charities have produced a suit of 'triage guides' on common tax issues. These have been produced with our partners in advisory services in mind, who might be approached for help on personal tax matters. These easy to follow, one-page guides take you through the common questions and stages of helping a client with their query, and those that need more help and support can be signposted to the tax charities, who are able to work with HMRC on the client's behalf when needed. Our guides can be downloaded as individual documents, or as the full guide below:

Self Employment Impact Support Scheme - first deadline

Applications for the first Self Employment Impact Support Scheme grant close on the 13th July. The tax charities have been running a dedicated Coronavirus Helpline to help people check their eligibility and how to apply for the grant, even if they are not online. There are still many people who are eligible who have not yet applied, so if help is needed, we are here on 0345 120 3779, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm to provide free, confidential support.
