Has anybody come up with a solution to the problem of obtaining SA302's from HMRC for client mortgage applications. I requested faxed copies today only to be told that the faxes will now take as long as the post - ie. 10 to 14 WORKING days. Apparently the policy of faxing on the same/next day no longer applies.
This is now causing problems for clients in the mortgage application process. It seems that online filers are being penalised because paper filers will receive an SA302 tax computation automatically.
My only thought going forward is for every SA client I complete, request the SA302's for 2012 & 2013 now and keep them on file and request 2014 once the tax return has been filed and accepted by HMRC.
Seems a bit of a sledgehammer to crack a nut but I can't think of any other way.
Any better suggestions welcome, short of the Mortgage companies accepting copy Tax Returns or HMRC posting SA302 calculations on client SA accounts.
