I have an unusual situation whereby a Ltd Co client has suffered CIS deductions through his personal UTR (prior sole trade) and not through the Company. I have been advised that the quickest way to remedy is to get repayment through SA, not reallocating it to the Company. This CIS rebate is well in excess of the CT due, and the CT is overdue.
I spoke today to a HMRC employee, and I advised that as soon as we have all the info we need to file the SA100 (still waiting for a bit), that they would receive a 5 figure refund, and that we would pay this immediately over to CT. She said "well we only have your word for that, so I'm going to refer it to debt collection."
Am I over-reacting, or did she just suggest we -the agent - might be liars?
