HMRC Centralisation of authorised investment funds and investment trust companies

Earlier this year, we announced that we intended to centralise our processing and compliance work relating to Authorised Investment Funds (AIFs) and Investment Trust Companies (ITCs) in one location. The chosen location is our Sheffield office, which already houses the Offshore Funds Centre and deals with Offshore Funds and Unauthorised Unit Trusts, and this will now include the Collective Investment Schemes Centre. Both the Investment Management Association and the Association of Investment Companies were informed of this decision.

We plan to bring together the computer records and the files for all AIFs and ITCs in Sheffield over the next few weeks. We will shortly contact customers and their managers or agents to notify them of the prospective date of transfer of the records for each case. Until then, customers should continue to correspond with their existing Tax Office. Customers’ Unique Taxpayer References (UTRs) will remain unchanged following the transfer and should continue to be used in all communications with us.

The address of the Sheffield office, to which all correspondence should be sent once notification of transfer of records is received, is:

Collective Investment Schemes Centre
6th Floor
Concept House
5 Young Street
S1 4LB

We will announce details of contact names and telephone numbers in due course. In the meantime, should you have any questions about the centralisation programme, you can contact the team manager, Paul Wyer, on Tel 0114 2969 341.
