Client did receive a new UTR reference and a statement of account showing her tax position.

Client is HNWI and at present there is a large credit not yet allocated to tax year. (client is 3 years behind with tax returns). This is client we have just signed up. Previous advisers appears to have disappear ...

Has anyone come across this before?

We have sent 64-08 with new reference to Longbenton, but not sure when this client will appear on our list at they always seem to take ages to process forms even if there has been some improvements in recent years.

Looking forward to receiving comments from all you good people..
