Working the Enquiry: Jeopardy Amendments: Conditions

TMA70/S9C

FA 98/SCH 18/PARA 30

Where, during the course of an enquiry, you form the opinion that

  • the amount of tax payable stated in the self assessment is insufficient, and
  • that unless the assessment is immediately amended there is likely to be a loss of tax to the Crown

you may by notice to the taxpayer amend the self assessment to make good the deficiency.

There is no restriction on the number of jeopardy amendments that can be made, so it would be possible to make successive amendments in respect of a single self assessment. In practice such cases are likely to be rare and will only occur where further facts emerge during the course of an enquiry which leads you to think that the first jeopardy amendment was based on a considerable underestimate of the tax due.
