Working together

Do HMRC have to reply to letters these days? The VAT68 team dont seem to be bothering!

Didn't find your answer?

I sent a VAT68 form to HMRC and forgot the VAT1, which should have accompanied it. My mistake.  I did send a covering letter asking some questions and explaining the Incorporation. Instead of simply contacting me as agent, HMRC have deregistered the client and now say he has to re-register! I am not sure why they just couldnt ask for the forms or give us a call. We are now unable to submit his return...

Does anyone know whether HMRC have officially given up replying to post - as the VAT68 team has!

Time wasters

We've never worked together.

HMRC are not my enemies - but they are my opponents.

As the recent farcical imposition of MTD has demonstrated, we do not "work together" with HMRC. We are like Tom and Jerry. Jerry survived because he recognised that he and Tom had to co-exist, but he regarded every move made by Tom with the greatest cynicism and suspicion. I read a quote from a bigwig at ICAEW saying he regarded HMRC as "friends" - ha!

I discovered recently there is an office dedicated to 'VAT reinstatements' 0300 057 4828 - maybe they can help?
