HMRC offers 'expert tax support' to growing businesses

20 September 2017

A new service to directly help mid-sized businesses as they expand and grow, has been launched today (September 20) by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The HMRC Growth Support Service is offering tailored support to companies with either a turnover of more than £10m or more than 20 employees. This could include: helping with tax queries, supplying accurate information and co-ordinating technical expertise from across HMRC, and assisting companies with getting their tax right first time and getting access to relevant incentives or reliefs.

Penny Ciniewicz, HMRC’s director general for customer compliance, said: “We want to support mid-sized businesses to grow and succeed. As businesses expand, their tax information needs and the support they require becomes more complex.

“By launching the Growth Support Service, HMRC can make sure growing businesses pay the right tax at the right time.”

The bespoke service will last between three to six months.
