The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
A customer compliance manager (CCM), formerly known as a customer relationship manager (or CRM), is appointed for businesses dealt with by the Large Business Service (LBS) and for a selection of businesses dealt with by Local Compliance (Large and Complex) (L&C).
