HMRC has opened a new telephone helpline, 0800 904 7900, to provide help and advice on tax problems experienced by individuals and businesses affected by the recent floods.
The helpline is open:
Weekdays between 8am to 8pm
Weekends between 8am and 4pm
HMRC say they will
• agree time to pay arrangements where taxpayers are unable to pay as a result of the floods
• agree a practical approach when individuals and businesses have lost vital records to the floods
• suspend debt collection proceedings for those affected by the floods
• cancel penalties if statutory deadlines have been missed due to the floods.
