One of my clients is due a significant repayment of s419 tax for 2007 and we received the notice of amendment 3 weeks ago. I had actually had to chase them up to get that far, so this has been ongoing for quite a while.
Per HMRC online, the overpayment is still sitting there.
When I phoned HMRC today, I was advised that they are waiting for Shipley to come back to them and confirm the effective date of payment, before they can deal with the repayment.
I know there have been issues with repayments being held up for security checks, but this is the first time I've had this problem.
Is this another obstacle being put in the path of repayments being issued by HMRC? Has anyone else had this problem?
