HMRC delays

HMRC VAT and PAYE setup delays

Didn't find your answer?

We applied for a Group VAT Registration end of August- called HMRC Registration helpline and they said it would be mid-January till we got the VAT Number.

Has anyone any knowledge about PAYE registration times please (we did an online application for a client on 27 November)?

We applied for a PAYE scheme on 04/11/2021 and still waiting the scheme numbers.

Just telephoned HMRC employer helpline and was given the scheme numbers over the phone.

We applied for TOGC for VAT on transfer from a partnership to Ltd Company in June. I chased this last week and were told there was a further SEVEN MONTH delay by HMRC staff to deal with such matters. I make no comment!

I've registered 3 PAYE and VAT schemes in the last 4 weeks.
VAT less than 72hrs to receive VAT number through online portal, the vat certificate follows within about 10 days.
PAYE in all cases in the region of 10 days.
