The CIOT has advised that HMRC are issuing discovery assessments “to people who they believe should have submitted a 2018/19 tax return containing the loan charge and who either did not include it on their return, or did not include it fully”.
The CIOT site has sample copies of the assessment notices, as well as of the accompanying letters being issued by HMRC.
