Securities Guidance

Security for tax at risk of being unpaid: monitoring compliance: power to direct a person to make monthly returns

We have the power to direct a person to make monthly returns in VAT and environmental tax cases. There is no power to do this in PAYE/NICs cases.

We can require security at the same time that we direct a person to make monthly returns.

A person can also request that they be allowed to make monthly returns.
