More than 4 million emails and SMS will be issued this week to Self Assessment customers reminding them about the 31 January deadline. As these go out, HMRC is warning customers to not be taken in by malicious emails, phone calls or texts, mistaking them for genuine HMRC communications.

Criminals often mimic government messages to trick their victims into handing over money or personal and financial information.

To help HMRC fight these crimes, you can report suspicious phone calls on GOV.UK, and forward suspicious emails to [email protected] and texts to 60599.

For any assistance or if you need help navigating HMRC online please contact the Tax Team on 01983 823898 ext 2836 or email [email protected]
