All recipients of the letter or email from HMRC will have been part of HMRC’s mandatory random enquiry programme. The questionnaire, which they will receive at some point between 7 and 21 June, is designed to help HMRC understand why the errors in the claims occurred. The feedback will inform HMRC processes and help to make it easier for companies to get their R&D claims right first time.
HMRC has advised that all responses to the questionnaire will be anonymised and personal details will be held securely in line with data protection law.
