HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has produced a set of online seminars – ‘webinars’ – both live and pre-recorded, to help customers to understand a variety of tax systems and learn what obligations they need to meet.
Important: HMRC webinars are supplied by a company called CITRIX – so don’t be concerned if you see their name on these products as well as HMRC logos etc.
Live webinars
Live webinars are available on set dates at set times. You need to register in advance for a live webinar, but the session is then recorded and made available to view after the event.
Live webinars last for an hour, they are interactive giving you the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from your HMRC webinar host.
Registering is quick and easy – simply provide your name and email address, choose the topic you are interested in and the date and time that suit you best. You will then receive an email with a link to view the webinar.
Tip: log in at least five minutes before the start time, to make sure the software needed for the webinar downloads to your computer in plenty of time.
Pre-recorded webinars
You don’t need to register for a pre-recorded webinar – they are available to view now, or whenever suits you. Simply choose the topic you are interested in, then follow the link to start viewing the webinar. HMRC are interested in what you think of the recordings and may contact you after you have viewed a recording for your thoughts on how to improve services.
