Approval Check Fee

What is meant by Approval Check Fee?

Didn't find your answer?

I have been registered with HMRC for about 10 years, during that time they have had £1500 out of me for (as far as I can see) no return.   This year when I tried to renew, there was a question regarding Approval Check Fee.   I misunderstood what was meant and ticked the box having completed  MLR Introductory Training at a cost of £40 + VAT with SWAT who have been taken over by another firm who apparently have no record of me!   HMRC say they can find no evidence that I have paid this fee and want another £40 out of me.   If I don't pay this, my registration will be cancelled and I will then have to pay another £300!   Advice please.

Yes, did the same thing myself and ticked the box incorrectly. It's a new charge apparently but not sure what for. You need to log in to your MLR account and just pay it. You then wait several months for formal acceptance of your renewal - I've been waiting since 15 August 2019.

I have now discovered that the Approval Check Fee is in fact a police check - which raises aniother question?? As they have supervised me for the last ten years without a police check, were these charges legal?

It's a check to ensure that you haven't got any unspent convictions related to dishonest or fraud. Perfectly legal.

Pay the £40 and move on.

You've more to do with your life.
