Warning: HM Revenue & Customs issue letters to UK customers of HSBC Switzerland

By RJP LLP on 30 November, 2011

It has come to our attention that HMRC have started issuing letters to UK customers of HSBC Switzerland requesting that they sign certain forms in respect of their tax affairs. These letters originate from the new Criminal Intelligence Group which is based out of Birmingham.

Recipients are being asked to respond by signing the forms before the 21st December deadline. Although the letter isn't explicit, it's quite likely that if you get one of these and do nothing, HMRC will launch a full investigation into your tax affairs.

Our advice to any clients or colleagues who get one of these letters is DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING without taking expert advice. If you are unsure and want some immediate advice about this, please do not hesitate to get in touch for a confidential, no cost and no obligation discussion.

You can email any of RJP's partners, Lesley, Simon or Paul.
