Chris Clarifies Position On HMRC And Email Complaints
The main risks associated with using email that concern HMRC are:
- Confidentiality and privacy, as there is a risk that emails sent over the internet may be intercepted.
- Confirmation of identity, as it is crucial that HMRC only communicate with established contacts at their correct email addresses.
- That there is no guarantee that an email received over an insecure network like the internet has not been altered during transit.
- That attachments could contain a virus or malicious code.
