Could we kindly ask you to use the Envelopes for the 22/23 Tax Year and not the previous years as your envelope number will not correspond to this year. Secondly, please do not score out numbers, dates or whatever is printed on the envelopes, it causes numerous problems. Could you also please note that the legacy collection ceased over a year ago. If you need up to date envelopes for this Tax Year 22/23, please ask.
