IHTM03300 - ALF file location system: tax files


All tax files and other files that are not Inheritance Tax files that are received have their own record created on ALF. The reference number takes the following format

  • the prefix FF,
  • followed by up 10 characters of the files reference,
  • followed by a check character.

The name on ALF is the name on the file and a barcode is attached to the file in a plastic wallet.

When you have obtained all the information you need from the tax file you should send it back to the tax district via the registry. The registry will note the file as closed on ALF when it is returned to its own office.
