HMRC online VAT query form

Any good?

Didn't find your answer?

I recently discovered this HMRC query form for VAT:

https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/shortforms/form/VATGenEnq?dept-name=&sub-...

Has anybody used this? If so, is it any good?

Would you rely on it?

I suspect that the answer depends on who is replying.

Dunno. If the level of expertise is on a par with Webchat, then a pinch of salt may be required.

But if it's a formal written response, I guess having it on file is no bad thing if it supports a particular course of action.

I have used this four times. My first two messages received prompt, authoritative answers. My more recent efforts (February and April 2021) didn't receive a reply of any sort.

The actual technology behind the website is great, but sadly the idiots on the other end ruin the experience.
