Advisers flag HMRC filing concerns

Advisers worried about client lists as they prepare for online tax filing

Problems have emerged with HM Revenue & Customs’ self-assessment filing
systems, according to reports.

Advisers have flagged up clients disappearing off previous online filing
lists, while penalty notices arrived four months late, building up the charges
for clients, reported AccountingWeb.

‘We’ve been through our online client list at HMRC and found 15 clients for
whom we filed online last year have disappeared from the list. Why?’ said one
respondent.

HMRC said that the penalty notices were in line with its timetable, and were
only obliged to send a penalty when a return was received late. Penalties issued
in September also act as a reminder to those employers who it believes have not
sent a return.

A response was awaited for the other issues tax advisers had with the self
assessment system.
