We have often alerted you to scams which purport to be communications from HMRC, but are actually criminals trying to access your bank account or your login details for your online tax account.

These types of scams continue, but HMRC are conducting a number of genuine surveys through the market research firms Kantar Public and Ipso MORI. If you are selected for the survey you won’t be asked to provide any personal or financial information, or to make any payments.

You can also refuse to take part in the survey if you are contacted by either market research firm. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you are worried about any communication which is supposedly from HMRC, or from a debt collector acting on behalf of HMRC.
