HMRC slow to pay refunds

tax refunds from HM Revenue and Customs due to new random security checks, the

repayments of tax owed to them. Accountant Rob Durrant-Walker at UHY Hacker
Young says many clients owed money are experiencing financial difficulties at
having to wait such a long period to be repaid.
