Monthly return: Rapid Data Capture (RDC) guidance: TaxPost bags received from other HMRC offices


CISR68000 Information guide contents

When a contractor’s monthly return is received in a local network or other office, they need to be:

  • Date stamped on the back page of the return in the empty space. Staff should not date stamp over any text particularly the barcode, AO reference, page number or form ID.
  • Forwarded to RDC Netherton in a polylope by TaxPost.

HMRC staff at Netherton should open the TaxPost bags on a daily basis and check the contents. The contents may fall into one of the categories 1 to 8 listed above and should be dealt with as detailed at CISR68610.

Returns that are suitable for scanning should then be gathered together with the date of receipt cover (as indicated by the date stamp on the back of the return) and forwarded to Aspire for processing.

Where the return is received without any continuation sheets, the return should be forwarded to Aspire inside its’ envelope to denote it as one submission. Where there isn’t an envelope, Aspire will treat each contractors return as a separate submission by inserting a separator sheet. Returns that are accompanied by no more than two continuation sheets should be forwarded to Aspire with the continuation sheets contained within the pages of the contractors return. Where more than two continuation sheets have been submitted these, along with the contractor’s return, will be put into an envelope so as to denote that this is a single submission.
