I submitted a client's Tax Return using recommended software. The Return was accepted by HMRC and presumably the calculations agreed. However, when I checked the HMRC website to confirm the amount due, I disovered a small difference of about £71. When I rang the Agents' Helpline, the young lady I spoke to was very quick to tell me what the difference was before I gave her any figures. It turned out that the difference was the 'in year adjustment' put through by HMRC, presumably as part of the dynamic coding.
She told me that this was a recurring problem, and immediately undertook to rectify it.
What a waste of time, mine and hers! It does not inspire me with confidence in MTD. Incidentally, who pays for my time? I can't very well charge the blameless client. And we all pay for HMRC's!
Anyone else come across this? I suppose that if there's enough of us who complain, something might be done ............................... soon.
