HMRC submission sytem down- I called them -they are trying to fix it.
Why can't they put it on their website @@[email protected]@ ?
All bodes well for the future. Hope they are not going to be too trigger happy when it comes to late filing penalties.
HMRC is a flawless, well oiled machine.
Late filing penalties are part of everyday life and, provide the resources, for this flawless, well oiled machine.
CT600's also bouncing
Also income tax returns (a late 2016/17 client). So it's the whole shebang that has fallen over.
They only have one computer??
It's a bit of a stretch calling it "a computer". I believe that it's a repurposed Casio calculator from circa 1982.
I cannot get 64-8 submitted from Taxcalc
Great this digital service saves loads of time
No-one would be surprised if a cyber attack on HMRC was part of Russia's response to the Sergie Skripal nerve agent attack farce.
I'd think highly likely.
Or if not them it will be the bloke with the bad haircut from North Korea. After he wrecked the NHS last year with his last attack, he is upping is game to bring MTD to its knees, although I suspect its maybe not that hard to upset the HMRC systems, as just using them day to day seems to be enough to make them crash.
Why would Russia bother targeting a system that does not even work in the first place.
Seems to me that if Russia did target HMRC there must be a distinct probability that they inadvertently improve the existing systems by their actions.
Or maybe the way HMRC's systems are written is so poor on purpose, perhaps they are immune from attack as no self respecting hacker could possibly imagine that such a system could be constructed in such an ungainly manner and the weaknesses are not where one would expect, "I tell you Vlad, there must be an access here, it is the only logical place for access".
Can we have a whip round to put another shilling in the meter so HMRC's systems can get going again and we can all file what we need to.
Dunno if it's connected, but just tried emailing a response to a Sch 36 notice (and today is deadline day) to a previously working email address, to get a permanent failure message.
The email address used has worked previously.
Still encountering problems this am. with SA access, filing CT returns & rti. No real info from HMRC that I can see. First learned about it from CCH software news release yesterday.
I'm also having problems submitting RTI and CT return. Really doesn't bode well for future changes....
I used to smile, when I heard about HMRC's online problems.
Now, I just wince!
And still, the pillocks in charge of this operation, firmly believe they have found the promised land!
Well, if you want knighting, or dame-ing, I suppose it is?
