Completed CG34 prepared and submitted to HMRC November 2011. Letter sent chasing this up end of January 2012 as no response received. Finally HMRC replied mid February requesting copies of the accounts together with completion of the hold over claim form. We responded within the week enclosing the accounts information requested and asking how we where ment to complete the hold over form when the valuation offered has not yet been agreed. After a further month awaiting a response we have now received a brief letter thanking us for our letter and stating that the matter has been referred to the valuation office.
Form CG34 says to allow two months to check the valution but it can take longer.
Are these delays acceptable/ usual?
