Keeping safe online
HMRC has published updated guidance about online security. The guidance covers how HMRC works with, and contacts, taxpayers and agents.
The guidance includes:

- security messages: HMRC won’t use email to inform people of a tax rebate but are trialling the use of text messaging to contact some customers
- fraud and scams: hints and tips to help you spot fraudulent emails and what to do if you think you have received one.
