HMRC Self Assessment Delay...

Updated: May 4

HMRC is reportedly delaying the payment of self-assessment tax refunds and “threatening” to remove individuals from the self-assessment regime if extensive information is not provided.

There has been an increase in letters from HMRC to clients demanding extensive documents and information that it calls “security procedures” to make sure the “repayment amount claimed is correct”.

It's possible Individuals face removal from the self-assessment regime and delays on receiving grants under the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme.
