This guidance note examines several areas of VAT which have been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
For an overview of the impact of coronavirus on VAT more broadly, see the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and VAT ― overview guidance note.
The ability to communicate with HMRC using traditional means has been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. A number of the key changes are described below.
HMRC has indicated that for the time being it is no longer possible to submit form VAT 652 (which is used to tell HMRC about VAT return errors) by post. However, the form can be submitted by email to email@example.com.
The process for correcting errors is covered generally in the Correcting errors guidance note.
HMRC has updated guidance dealing with barristers and advocates to reflect temporary changes to communication / contact that have been put in place to stop the spread of coronavirus. This includes asking for electronic payment of VAT on professional fees instead of by cheque. Where a return is required, taxpayers are asked to contact the Government Accounting and Barristers Team by phone on 03000 556500
