Potential tax demand scam

The Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) is a well-known organisation that provides independent advice to the government on simplifying the UK tax system. 

The OTS has issued a press release to warn of a potential new tax scam that is using the OTS logo. 

The press release reads as follows:

We have been made aware of people receiving correspondence using the Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) logo and signatures to request payment of ‘tax’. The OTS is not a tax collection agency, and the correspondence is not legitimate.

If you receive any demand for payment of any kind claiming to be from the OTS, you should report it to the National Cyber Security Centre by forwarding the email to report@phishing.gov.uk.

When the OTS was established, it was as a temporary office of HM Treasury, but Finance Act 2016 confirmed the government’s decision to provide for the permanent establishment of the OTS in statute.
