I understand this situation is frustrating.
I think my clients would prefer me to submit the claim minus the 2 you mention so at least they are funded for the other 17 employees.
Then when HMRC respond or there is an alternative work around, process the other 2.

"while a high degree of control freakery is almost certainly going to be even more helpful" - good - this is my winter style!

We have received a number for clients who are in self assessment - another frustrating waste of time!

We came across an issue where two connected companies had an invoice between them which was settled by way of an adjustment to the intercompany loan.
HMRC applied the above rule because the invoice was not paid in physical funds.
The input VAT was disallowed but the same adjustment was not made on the output side as a sale had been made and there was no bad debt.
They would only allow the input VAT to be claimed in a later quarter having had sight of the bank statement showing the transfer of funds.

I would like some clients similar to yours.
Mine are incapable of retaining paperwork, including P60s which are clearly important and we often end up requesting this way.
The bigger issue is, as stated above someone has appointed us to represent them and we will no longer be allowed to.
HMRC is indeed a shadow of its former self and worse is yet to come.

I wish HMRC would just start with all taxes in one business tax account that agents can access, this would be the best digital start in my opinion.
The lack of information about what will be required for MTD is frustrating to say the least.
The assumption that people will "just enter" the additional information is crazy.

This problem is extremely frustrating. Not only does it take time to resolve, it casts doubt on our calculations.
We tell the client an amount to pay and then HMRC write to them saying "we've amended it to this". Nine times out of ten the client thinks we are the ones who made the mistake.
If they are asking people to "self assess" then surely they should accept what we are reporting.

What an utter waste of time!

I think with nurseries you just get a feeling about which is best for your child. Loads of my friends recommended one to me, and when I went to visit it terrified me. We chose somewhere else.
With regards to the party issue, I was taught you don't give to receive or invite to be invited back - this has always made sense to me. I couldn't imagine doing something and inviting all but one from a circle of friends, seems petty to me.
