We download our bank statements online through our PC. The reference has not been shortened. We receive other tax refunds such as self assessment refunds on behalf of our clients and the references are much longer (show their name/UTR number). The issue is most likely on HMRC's side not the banks.
Which bank is your client with which showed the reference number in the paper statement?

I agree with Wanderer, the issue is indeed with HMRC. We receive self assessment refunds for our clients and HMRC provide us with their name/UTR number as the bank reference.
Surely if they can do this they should be able to change the references for the company CIS refunds.

Our turnover has only increased by 11%. It's slightly higher than £300,000 but we've never had any claims against the practice.
We are also not in a high risk category as it's more general practice work. We would have thought that this would not increase the rates significantly.

I've also been experiencing the same problem. I called HMRC's online helpdesk and they confirmed that there is an issue.
I tried to push them for a timescale for when they expect it to be resolved. They said they're not sure and to try again tomorrow and if it still doesn't work then to call them again! Not really helpful at all.

Thank you for your detailed response.
Do other practitioners also find the API coming to the commercial software at around similar times to PTP? Or does your software show the information sooner? If yes, when?
Which commercial software do you (other practitioners) use?

That's great. We won't be relying solely on the HMRC figures as we know they're not always 100% accurate.
Thank you for your help.

I've heard that London & Zurich are also good but their website isn't very clear about their charges. Has anyone else used their service?

The problem we have is that if we submit the CT600 and accounts to HMRC, there will be a section 455 charge. Therefore, when we submit the client's personal accounts we will need to show the benefit and hence the client will have a higher tax liability. As previously mentioned, he does not have the savings/funds to pay for this tax.

Thank you for your reply.
The director has been on the company payroll for 2 years. We had run a standard salary up to the client's personal allowance and shown £5,000 tax free dividends. The account as it stands shows a corporation tax liability of £6,700 and the directors current account is overdrawn by £20,956 which means he would have a section 455 charge of £6,810.
Can he only receive the statutory redundancy pay or can he receive a higher amount than this?
How is the compensation for loss of office calculated? Could HMRC query how the figures were calculated and dispute it?
