Form 64-8 authorises us to communicate with an accountant, tax agent or adviser acting on your behalf. The form covers authorisation for individual tax affairs (partnerships, trusts, tax credits and individuals under PAYE) and business taxes (VAT, PAYE for employers and Corporation Tax). If you're a personal representative you can use form 64-8 in certain circumstances to ask HMRC to deal directly with an agent.

Alternatively your tax agent or adviser can use HM Revenue & Customs' online authorisation service - which is quick and secure.
