My tax agent ID My tax agent ID is MichaelLewis-F4JCUFJ8WT5N
You can appoint me online as your agent but you have to do it from the Government Gateway
, not from the HMRC website, I have no idea why.
To do anything useful it has to be from the HMRC website. Useful is things like adding yourself as an employee or doing a P14. Again I have no idea why you go to one website to do one thing and another website to do another. I guess this is what joined up government is all about.
Anyway, go to the HMRC website login
and click on the "Access Service" link to the right of PAYE for Employers. Then click the link on the right "Online Returns & Forms PAYE Product", it's on the right near the top of the page, then the link "Online Return and Forms - PAYE product", it's in the middle at the top. After this the selection of things to do becomes a lot easier to follow.
