Tax repayments

Didn't find your answer?

Several months ago I sent off tax returns for my wife and her brother. They are both due repayments on trust income. Keep looking at their government gateways and it says repayment pending. I have applied for the repayments to be sent to their bank accounts. How long can they keep repayments pending without making repayments?

One the advantages of having an accountant is knowing how and when to deal with problems such as this.

Random security and verification checks, at play, I would guess.

HMRC representatives will always explain that even they have no ability to ascertain when the refund might be issued.
