Document

Detail

Use form TC689 if you want an intermediary, such as Citizens Advice, to act on your behalf for your tax credits or Child Benefit.

Don’t use form TC689 to authorise a paid agent such as an accountant or other professional adviser to act on your behalf. You should use form 64-8 instead.
