Is any one still awaiting P35 refunds due to CIS deductions for 2009/2010?

Is any one still awaiting P35 refunds due to...

Also, does anyone know how I can claim CIS deductions back if the ltd .co. client has no employees: only the director and he's paid under the PAYE/NICs limits.

I have attempted offset against same year's CT liability (amounts are practically identical) and HMRC said no.

Had similar offset given for a different client who was registered for PAYE and CIS refund was transferred to CT liability record?

Why should a client pay a CT liability of £6,500 only to have it handed back almost immediately as a CIS refund?

Any serious suggestions greatly appreciated....

P35 CIS refunds

Yes, I have a client who has still not received his. However he is still waiting for the 08/09 refund as well. I am struggling to get anywhere despite getting told by various people at HMRC to provide copies etc. I have done all this more than once and am getting nowhere. 

When I called again the other day they actually told me to offset it against Corporation tax! (After telling me earlier definately not to do this).

I've done this without any problem ......

I've had a couple of clients in this position and it's been processed relatively smoothly/efficiently (for a change).

There's no direct mechanism for set-off of CIS against CT liabilities but in the past I've simply written to the PAYE processing office (ie. not Shipley) requesting they set-off the CIS credit against the CT liability. You should provide the CT reference and the CT office address/phone number in your letter and send a copy to the CT office.

If you're simply looking to get the CIS deductions physically repaid, again it's a letter to the PAYE processing office explaining that the CIS credit arose as a result of CIS deductions suffered that could not/were not set off against PAYE liabilities arising and requesting repayment.

The PAYE office will not normally require copies of any proof of CIS deducted unless their records show a materially different amount against the PAYE record - I've never had to supply any supporting details and the repayment was processed within about 4-6 weeks which isn't bad considering.
