Withdraw tax return

Didn't find your answer?

I'm assuming the answer is no but is there any facility to ask for a tax return to be withdrawn online? I have been on hold to the trust line for most of this morning. I just need a tax return to be withdrawn for a trust client - they have no income or gains to report in the year. Thanks.

No. You are better persevering with the phone give the time scales on letters being dealt with (there is also the advantage that the half trained clown answering can ask any necessary further questions then) but equally likely they will announce that your query can't be dealt with and will require you to send in writing.

You could probably have completed the return, had the trustees approve it, filed it and raised your fee more quickly.

Or to be blunter, OP, why does a tax return need to be withdrawn (rather than merely amended)?
It was approved by the trustees prior to filing, wasn't it?
So how does "no income or gains to report" belatedly arise?

I think it's about withdrawing the notice (s.8B).

Well that certainly makes more sense, so thanks (although I wish those posting questions would say what they really mean).

Now that the situation is clearer to me ... I can only endorse TD's comment above!

Apologies, yes I meant withdraw the notice to file the return, not the return itself. I did manage to get through to the trust line eventually but I agree, it probably would have been quicker filing a nil return.
