How to add an accountant as an agent on HMRC

We all know that tax and HMRC can be really complicated to deal with, one of the things our clients were struggling with is clear guidelines on how to add an accountant as an agent on HMRC. Adding your accountant to your business tax account can be a life saver, they can check your file to make sure there are no issues , submit various returns directly to HMRC and even chat to HMRC on your behalf – because who wants to listen to that hold the line music. Accountants normally assume that clients can easily connect to agents without extensive research, unfortunately, like much of our industry, whats easy for us is not easy for small businesses, it can be hard unless you know exactly how to do it.
