Compliance Handbook

How to do a compliance check: information powers: excise information notice: time to comply

An information notice should specify a reasonable period within which the person must provide the documents.

If you specify a date by which the documents must be provided then remember that the notice must first be approved by the tribunal.

There is more detailed guidance at CH23420.
