Erroneous payments on client's SA account

Over £2k paid into client's SA account from a.n. other

Didn't find your answer?

Has anybody come across erroneous payments to a client's SA account before?

I have a client whose SA account shows several payments into the account now totalling just over £2180. The first three were close together, Dec 19, Jan 20 and Mar 20, then there was a gap until March 21 and Aug 21

I rang HMRC at the time just after Mar 20 and thought the payments would have been moved into suspense, but nothing happpened.

Just find it baffling that somehow somebody is mistyping their UTR (and by some coincidence the combination of number is valid and matches my clients) and that they aren't noticing their payments aren't hitting their own SA account by now.

More an observation than a question I guess!

I don't find it baffling that certain clients are shambolic. The sort who are careless about typing their UTR will also be sloppy in checking their balance.
