Strange one here. Tried to submit a Corp Tax return for a client with a 30/9/13 year end. Got a failure message that CRN didn't match with HMRC's records. Checked Co's House etc and we have correct CRN.
Clients were on our agent list on HMRC website previously but not now listed under their name. Did a search on UTR on HMRC website and it appears that our client's UTR has now been allocated to a totally unrelated company with a different CRN (and different Reg Office address per Companies House). Have checked back through our files etc and I can't see that we've actually received any notices from HMRC for quite a while.
Now have to send in Return manually with further 64-8 from our client and try and get this sorted.
I'm hoping this is a one off and just a hideous mistake, but has anyone else had similar issues? If so, could it be a sign of HMRC database problems?
