Has anyone made a DPA request to HMRC and, if so, can you share if you had any joy.

I would like to request:

1) copies of all correspondence between HMRC and me or my advisors regarding any of the s9 enquiries
2) copies of all correspondence between HMRC and my scheme promoters regarding my particular scheme
3) copies of all submitted tax returns for the last 15 years

Can anyone share their experiences here?

Cheers!

Interesting angle here.

If anything this could tie up their resources!!!

"The DPA requires that we comply with a request for information promptly and in any event within 40 days of receipt. HMRC will always try to provide a response within this timescale."

I will look out some sample template letters I used for other DPA request I have used previously.
BTW DPA you could ask for EVERYTHING they hold on you!

You can doesn't mean you should. I recommend doing it by mail. More cumbersome for them.

A couple of years ago I requested everything they held on me.

It arrived in 3 big parcels.

Mine arrived in 3 small packets with wrong info. They not even mentioned where I have enquiries open. But unfortunately I cannot hold them accountable when they issue an APN that enquiry was not in information they provided me

I used it twice, and I know others have, but this was a few years ago.

Give it a go and see if it still works.
