UK processing moved to Longbenton office

The taxman has centralised the process for handling national agent codes, which are required for all advisers acting for taxpayers within self-assessment.

Code requests and changes to agent details are now dealt with by a single team and should be made in writing to HMRC, Central Agent Authorisation Team, Agent Maintainer, Benton Park View, Longbenton, Newcastle upon Tyne NE98 1ZZ.

The Revenue says it centralised the system to provide a single route for agent codes, making for a more efficient service.

The agent code should be quoted on all 64-8 agent authorisation applications and can also be used to register for appropriate online services.

Written correspondence to change the details of agents based abroad (including Channel Islands and Isle of Man) should be sent to HMRC, CAR Residency, Abroad Agent Maintainer, St Johns House, Unit 353 Merton Road, Liverpool L75 1BB.
