SA Online

.

Didn't find your answer?

As we all know, HMRC IT is slow as mollasses. So when a Tax Return is filed, it can take up to 72 hours to process.

Once processed, looking at SA online, at the liabilities for the year you can usuallyu click a link to get a breakdown of the tax charge (between POAs, balancing charge, etc.)

Do those links appear once a NIL liability Return is filed and processed? Or does it just stay as it was before the Return. (can't recall another NIL return to check against).

I just checked one I done recently and no hyperlink appears in the Tax Year Overview section.

If you go to Tax Return Options though, it lets you know the date it was received on, so you can see it has been captured.

I am confident that where there are transactions that are relevant the link will be there even if the sum total is Nil- link being activated by clicking on the "tax" button. Note some nil liabilities have transactions for example payments on acount latyer removed out or adjustment to remove clss2NI etc.

I have proof checked one from last last year which was nil and had no "transactions" for that year - as you say there appears to be no link here - that is slightly annoying as i would deffo prefer link even if that is to confirm the amount is Nil and there are no adjustments.

The danger here is that there is no easy way to check if the return has got stuck. Practicably speaking if its nil and the return is logged as being in hmrc's possession thats more their problem than the clients - perhaps unless there is a pending marriage transfer that needs the return to be processed.

This is for Tax Year Overviews for mortgage applications. I'd rather know that the Nil submission, and HMRC's NIL liability are in accordance with each other, rather than get the TYO based on HMRC incomplete data.
