HMRC introduces 2-Step Verification for business taxpayers

Since 1 September 2017, all business taxpayers are now required by HMRC to use its 2-Step Verification (2SV) service to access their online tax accounts. 2SV provides an extra layer of security when logging in to HMRC’s online services by requiring users to enter an automated code that HMRC has sent to their mobile phone or landline. The Association of Accounting Technicians is encouraging all firms to identify any online HMRC tax accounts they hold, as well as how employees who need access to their accounts will receive the 2SV code.
