Form 64-8

[fɔːm 64-8]



Form 64-8 allows individuals or companies to authorise tax agents to communicate with HMRC on behalf of them.

More detail:

Form 64-8 is a UK tax form issued by HMRC that authorises an agent to act on behalf of a company or individual for tax dealings. This simplifies the taxation process for the company or individual as they can delegate the job to a trained professional. It may also make the tax return more accurate or even lower the tax bill, as the trained Accountant is knowledgable about the best procedures and practices.

The form is very simple and just requires some personal details, details about the agent, and the specific details about what tax matter the agent is allowed to complete.

An example page of the Form 64-8 is shown below:
