Updating Trust Registration Service
HMRC is implementing the Trust Registration Service in a number of phases. Currently, it is not possible for lead trustees and their agents to update their registered information or to declare that there have not been any changes.
The work to allow trustees and agents to update their details online is now underway. Following user feedback, we are switching to a new system (a ‘micro service’) which will be more intuitive, easier to navigate and have several advantages over the current ‘iForm’ service. We intend to roll out the new service at the start of the summer of 2019 and functionality will be expanded gradually in a series of deployments, which will include the ability to update details.
In the meantime, if you need to inform HMRC that the lead trustee or trust correspondence address has changed, then please write to us at:
