VAT Online, but nothing else
Is it just me that cannot log onto the HMRC home page, Revenue Internet Services, etc. - in fact, anything at or - this morning?

The only thing I can log into today is VAT Online and other pages at

No idea..

I have been trying to access VAT online all day but to no avail.

Of course the service link says 'Full service available'!!

Angry of Putney
I spend most of the weekend preparing the information to file online for four clients then spend all day Monday trying and failing to access the online filing area of HMRC site.

What if I was going on holiday tomorrow, or even this afternoon, would my clients be penalized for late filing?

I have printed off the "Online Services Temporarily Unavailable" message and will use it as evidence if I fail to file on time.

I'm really really pissed off about this. Upset my planned Monday routine.
