HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has issued guidance on how businesses can best recognise genuine HMRC contact emails.


The contents of the guidance document include;

2. How to tell if an email is fraudulent
3. Report HMRC related phishing/bogus emails

HMRC sends informational emails several times a year to employers who have registered to receive them. These emails never ask for personal or financial information.

The latest batch of emails issued by HMRC will be sent from 17th June 2015. The emails are titled ‘Important information for employers’ and refer to Employer Bulletin 54. The emails include links which direct recipients to pages on the HMRC website, including advice about online security.
