Working Together digital meetings

01 April 2016

Regional Working Together digital meetings have been launched which look for ways to improve HMRC’s operations for the benefit of tax agents, their clients and HMRC. The next meeting is to be hosted by the South West Region on Friday 8 April 2016.

Working Together groups hold online meetings to give tax agents and advisers the opportunity to raise and discuss issues with HMRC, and to hear messages from the department.

Any agent is welcome to join the Working Together online meetings. Some agents in the regional groups (London, South West, South East, East and East Midlands, West Midlands, North West, North East, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) will represent one of the main representative bodies, or other agent organisations. Agents who attend the online meetings are asked, where appropriate, to bring discussion items from their colleagues with them, and feed back to them after each meeting.

The regional groups also discuss HMRC operational issues with the relevant Subject Matter Experts - resolving them where possible.

There will be a minimum of 10 online meetings a year hosted by the regional groups. All meetings have formal agendas and regular feedback is provided to group members on issues raised.

Working Together digital meeting - South West Region Friday 8 April 13:00 – 14:00

The first half of the meeting will be an interactive session where you will have the opportunity to talk with a subject matter expert from HMRC. This will be followed by a discussion on the current status of some open issues, which HMRC will track each month through the Agent Digest.

13:00 – 13:30 Subject: Non-UK domiciles reform – Subject matter expert presentation. An opportunity to find out about the proposed tax rule changes for non-domicile individuals.

13:30 – 14:00 Issues: Agent Digest led by the South West Region.

The Working Together digital meeting will be run via the CITRIX platform that was used for previous meetings, so some of you will already be familiar with how to ask a question but, for any newcomers, the organiser will run through how to do this on the day.

To register for this session please click here Working Together 8 April 2016.

There will be a chance to ask questions during the session, but if you have any questions for the subject matter expert prior to the meeting, please send them to: team.agentengagement@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk.
