HMRC Digital is looking for assistance from business owners

on .

HMRC Digital is looking for assistance from business owners (these are private limited companies with turnover below 632K per year but could also be charities or clubs) who file their own annual business accounts to companies house, and/or their HMRC corporation tax return online.


HMRC has built a new online service that allows smaller companies to file their annual accounts and their corporation tax return and we would like business owners who make use of accessibility equipment to try this out.


If you have already used this service we would like to speak to you about your experience. If you have not used this service but intend to make use of it in the future we would like to speak to you to see how well it meets your accessibility needs.


Ideally we would like our User Researcher to visit you so that you show how well the service works for you, with your own accessibility equipment – but we can also arrange online reviews or telephone interviews if this would be more convenient. If you would like to take part please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or ring him on 07974 300909 and he will speak to you. HMRC can arrange an incentive payment for your time through their market research agency.”
