HMRC has started to recover overpayments of Self-employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grants.

From April, HMRC started writing to taxpayers whose entitlement to the fourth or the fifth SEISS grant has reduced by more than £100 to ask them to repay amounts that were overpaid.

Entitlement to the fourth and fifth SEISS grants can be affected by an amendment to a tax return. HMRC’s letters include an assessment and a date by which you must make the repayment. If the payment is over 30 days late, a late payment penalty of 5% of the unpaid tax will be applied.

Even if you do not receive a letter, you must tell HMRC within 90 days if an amendment to a tax return affects your entitlement.

HMRC has named two tax avoidance schemes and their promoters for the first time.

They are advising anyone involved to withdraw from them as soon as possible to prevent the build up of large tax bills.

Both schemes involve individuals working as contractors agreeing to an employment contract under which they are paid the National Minimum Wage (NMW). The balance of their wage is paid as a loan to try to avoid national insurance and income tax.

HMRC is letting taxpayers know as early as possible so they can steer clear of these schemes or exit them if they have already joined. This is the first time HMRC has used new powers to name tax avoidance schemes and their promoters as part of a campaign to warn the public not to get caught up in tax avoidance.

HMRC has launched a new one-stop online shop.

It is designed to provide taxpayers with information on the tax reliefs and financial help available from HMRC.

In a new section of the GOV.UK website, HMRC has listed financial support available to ensure individuals are not missing out. There is guidance on relief for childcare and work-related expenses, as well as information about savings and getting help if you cannot pay your tax bill.
