The Compliance Reform Forum (CRF) is a joint forum in which HMRC consults and communicates with representative organisations about changes to HMRC compliance checking activities, with a particular focus on the views of tax agents and their clients.

Specifically the purpose of the CRF is to:

  • act as the main point of engagement with agent representatives on all new and changed compliance initiatives whenever possible
  • seek representative body input into the design and delivery of new compliance checking activities
  • provide early notice of compliance activities and information about these
  • help representative bodies to explain new and changed compliance checking activities to their members so that they can fulfil their obligations to clients
  • monitor and feedback on the effectiveness of compliance processes and consider any post-implementation issues arising as a result of compliance changes
  • provide a greater understanding of HMRC’s compliance strategy and how this contributes towards both HMRC’s Vision and Your Charter
