    Can anyone explain why the Inland Revenue do not include the Agent's
    Code anywhere on 64-8's?

    Whenever I get new clients the Inland Revenue gives me a new agent's
    code and I have the hassle of getting it changed to the correct code!

    If they can't get this right I can see why they get everything else
    wrong!

    Why don't you write your Agent's number after the Agent's name. I do
    and I've never had any new numbers issued.

    Thanks for the advice - I'll try that but I had just expected I'd get
    yet another agent code based on "Peter Saxton & Co. XXXXXX" based on
    the idiots I usually deal with at the Inland Revenue!

    On another point, when a new employee has to fill in a form P85
    because they will be working abroad why does the Inland Revenue never
    issue a change of code until the employer phones up and asks for one.
    They don't seem to have a form for the employer to request a NT code
    or a system for issuing one without the employers chasing the Inland
    Revenue.
