Thank you for these replies everyone, given me a good giggle! Sorry Polly, but you do have to laugh....
(PS I particularly liked 'tell them I would ... speak to someone normal')

and don't forget the pension deduction for the AE pensions.

non filing notices and no one to call
And to cap it all today we're getting non-filing notices for EPSs for the period to 5/6/14 and it's only the 13th......
No phone calls will be made to HMRC but pre-emptive message to clients will need to be made and yet more time will be wasted....

I've started writing
My questions are always PAYE related so I can't use the Agent's phone line either.
I have started writing instead as the time waiting and then the hanging up is toooooo frustrating and you lose the will to live.
There doesn't seem to be a good time either and I've tried weekends.
I might start sending the post recorded if that doesn't help.

Thanks for bringing up this topic. I have had a number today and I know my software won't allow them. I will try ringing the HMRC but frequently loose the will to live waiting in the queue!

be really careful
In 2007 we bought a retail business with 2 years left on the lease, the landlord wanted a 75% increase when the time came! We couldn't believe it, with the economic environment as it was, and it was a full repairing lease as commercial premises leases often are. We were just about breaking even but it killed our chances of carrying on especially as business rates went up madly at the same time. We beat a measured retreat but it hurt.
So a word of warning, landlords aren't always sane!

thank you Albert
for sharing your experience - mental health issues are so misunderstood and can lead to stuff even worse than bankruptcy (my nephew committed suicide a couple of years ago at the age of 27) It is so good to hear that you have come out the otherside and are able to share your experience - it is really inspirational.

had this problem, persistently, with PAYE and CIS clients. It is so frustrating.
However, they are always eventually found and put back on my list - I check that the right number are there pretty much everyday now.
I have been told that part of the issue is that the authorisation code (you know the PE#######) is case sensitve and I am not consistent in the way I use it; those where I have used pe rather than PE are the ones that disappeared not the others. And, before you ask, some of the clients had been visible for many months, even a cuople of years, before disappearing.
Good luck getting them back
ps Have they told you to try going through your Government Gateway instead of the HMRC Portal? I didn't even know I had one, but apparently they were all visible on the gateway all the time!

In deepest Devon
I have been able to persuade most of my clients to pay by bank transfer but not all, and their suppliers (whom I often pay have to pay from clients funds) to give me their bank account details for e-pay but some of them are really reticent. Especially the farmers!
As for cash - you get robbed everytime you try to bank it!

on Sage 50
if you enter the receipt again then go to the corrections page and mark it as reconciled you can sort the problem. Don't know about in your version of Sage, but it's worth a go. You need to put in the reconcilation date that you originally used. (been there, seen it, done it!). Cheers
