HM Revenue & Customs is taking too long to process tax refunds, a group
which represents hundreds of accountants has warned.
The Independent Certified Practicing Accountants group, which represents 600
accountants, claims refunds which should take days to get through, are taking
months, The Mail on Sunday reported.
Tony Margaritelli, ICPA chairman, said refunds are taking an interminable
time and accountants are unimpressed by the excuses.
`Most galling is the fact that the revenue has been encouraging accountants
to file self-assessment for clients because refunds are automated and should
therefore come through within days,’ he said.
