New form for notifying HMRC of VAT errors

HMRC have launched a new online G-form which is intended to become the default option to notify them of errors in VAT returns.

Any VAT-registered business who wish to submit a VAT Error Correction Notice (ECN) can use the new online process. Once submitted, a copy of the digital form will be captured by HMRC’s Digital Mail Service (DMS) and processed in a similar way to the paper form VAT652.

The new G-Form will streamline the current process, making it easier to notify HMRC about errors on VAT returns. It will enable businesses to:

  • Upload supporting documentation.
  • Provide explanatory notes.
  • Save the form for completion later.
  • Receive submission confirmation (with a reference number)

The existing paper form VAT652 remains available, but using the digital process may help to reduce mistakes through its built-in validation and automated calculations.
