One of my clients called me last summer to say she had received a letter from HMRC "inviting" her to make a grant claim. To say this surprised me was putting it mildly; she is an elderly lady in her 70's whose only source of "self employed" income is as a Lloyd's Name. I advised her, of course, that she was not entitled to the grant but nonetheless she insisted on making a claim which she said she would do by telephone as she has neither a computer nor the internet. To my total amazement she ended up receiving almost £6500.
So, as there is presumably a record of the phone conversation with HMRC confirming her entitlement, who am I to say it has been incorrectly paid?
