Referrals under Professional Conduct in relation to tax

The request was successful.

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

HMRC and professional accounting and tax bodies have an agreement under which the behaviour of certain firms can be referred to their professional body. This is usually referred to as the professional Conduct in Relation to Tax policy.

How many firms have been referred to their professional body by HMRC since 2010?

Yours faithfully,

We have allocated the above reference which you should quote if you need

on to a more appropriate part of the Department for answer.

Yours sincerely
