26/07/17 ALCOHOL WHOLESALER REGISTRATION SCHEME (‘AWRS’) -HMRC PERSUADED TO CHANGE THEIR MINDS WITH ‘MINDED TO’ REVOKE LETTER

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

M&R Tax have been successful in persuading HMRC not to revoke a company’s AWRS following the submission of information to HMRC in order that they could re-consider their pending decision.  It is so important for businesses to react to the HMRC ‘Minded To’ letters since any delay will cause HMRC to revoke a company’s AWRS number with potential drastic and fatal consequences.  A UK wholesaler cannot trade without the HMRC seal of AWRS approval.  The only alternative is costly via a Judicial Review and slow via the HMRC Review and Appeals Team [30 days to seek a review and 45 days for them to review any additional information] and then the First Tier Tax Tribunal [30 days to submit an appeal following a review decision].
