Can anyone help me?
I've just received an email from a client who is eligible to claim support under SEISS 4, however they are a French national living in London and don't drive. So when they get to the section where they have to provide HMRC with either details of the UK passport or UK driving licence for extra verification prior to submitting their claim, they fail simply becuase they are a non driving Frenchmen. Whilst some may applaud this twist by HMRC (no doubt in response to Les France's shellfish ruse post Brexit) it does seem a tad unfair. They have been residing in the UK for several years now, and have paid UK tax and NIC on their earnings.
Has anyone else come accross this problem? Has anyone got any suggestions? Obviously as their agent I cannot make a claim on their behalf; so is this just a case of fromage dur?!
