HMRC’s Shared Workspace is a service that allows businesses and tax agents to share sensitive data, for example, accounts or employee information, with HMRC. 

According to HMRC, the service allows members to ‘share’ information in a ‘space’ where they can work together in real time. More than one person can view or edit material at the same time, with all amended versions being automatically saved and organised.

In order to use the Shared Workspace users must be invited by HMRC or request HMRC online service. Shared Workspace is available to qualifying businesses and agents, not individuals. 

Shared Workspace is very versatile and can be designed to meet the needs of customers who may deal with the different parts of HMRC. This also includes more complex and specialist work involving HMRC.

Before requesting to use this service, HMRC recommends contacting your local HMRC office and they will see whether the service is suitable for your needs.
