(3)An application for approval under this section may be made without notice (except as required under subsection (4)).

(4)The tribunal may not approve the giving of a taxpayer notice or third party notice unless—

(a)the tribunal is satisfied that, in the circumstances, the officer giving the notice is justified in doing so,

(b)the person to whom the notice is to be addressed has been told that the information or documents referred to in the notice are required and has been given a reasonable opportunity to make representations to a designated officer,

(6)Where the tribunal approves the giving of a third party notice under this paragraph, it may also disapply the requirement to name the taxpayer in the notice if it is satisfied that the designated officer has reasonable grounds for believing that naming the taxpayer might seriously prejudice the assessment or collection of tax.
