Whats going on with Taxreturn 2024?

Request repayments Multiple times

Didn't find your answer?

I completed my self-assessment on 6 April 2024.

2days later, I could ask for repayment, but every 48 hours is asking me again.

I am on my "3x" third repayment request by now, don't know what going on!

A similar event happened last year but after the second request everything was fine!

 

Appreciate any insight, please share

 

thank you

It's likely you will need to contact them to have it released.

As per your identical post on a different thread ... I can see that English is not your first language, but if you want even a chance of a helpful answer then you need to be much clearer.

"2days later, I could ask for repayment, but every 48 hours is asking me again"
... who or what is "asking" you?
... what is the question it/they are asking you?

I think what the op really means is they have claimed a refund but (I'm guessing) because it is being rejected the overpayment (from the 2023/24 Self Assessment return) reappears as as a credit on their Self Assessment account and they try and claim it again. Repeat ad infinitum.

I don't think any actual conversation has happened.

This old chestnut is possibly the root cause of the issue. Although in the last couple of years there have been entertaining threads on one of the MSE forums about HMRC repayment security checks.

I don't think I'm necessarily being rejected, but any guesses?

What have the Welsh done to offend HMRC?

Nothing that I'm aware of!

It looks like they are probaly trying to comply with a request for Welsh language versions of correspondence.

I would wait a month and if you haven't received the refund due then ring them up.

If you have the time to spend looking it up twice a day, then it might be worth phoning the HMRC to ask.

if you have employment income etc you have to wait until all such info has been received from employers etc

... and then wait again until HMRC have completed their 'reconciliation' processes.
Could be a long wait in total ...

That really isn't relevant to the op as they have clearly stated they filed a Self Assessment return.

It's relevant if there's PAYE or CIS tax on it.

No idea if it's relevant to OP.
But it is relevant as an addendum to carnmores' post (the one to which I replied):
"if you have employment income etc you have to wait until all such info has been received from employers"
- which was a perfectly valid point regarding a SA return (as then is mine, if that employment included PAYE tax).

EDIT: thanks lion, hadn't realised you'd already made the same point.

You're on the wrong forum. This forum is for professional advisers who are becoming increasingly irritated by impatient subbies doing their own tax returns.

Splurge of posts; a two day wait, another splurge... I'm beginning to understand how HMRC feel!

There'd be fewer complaints if these neophytes' posts were really a splurge (an act of spending money freely or extravagantly)..
Anyway I thought lion enjoyed last year's mammoth outpouring (certainly seemed happy 'to light the touch-paper and retire' every few days as I recall)! :=)

I thought you'd be bored with it but happy to look at it again if it's considered entertaining.

Certainly not learned from last year by the look of it. hanken95 made 17 out of the 316 total posts on last year's mammoth thread (and never told us how or when it concluded).

Get a few of the boys together and pop round to see if you can "encourage" a more prompt payment.

What money do HMRC 'take from you'?

CIS? No that is deducted by the contractor.
PAYE? No that is deducted by the employer.
SA? You mean the tax you get 10 months to pay after the tax year?

I don't know how HMRC are quick to take money off you? Biggest myth around.
