Tax man warns advisers to get claims in on time

Time limits for claims changing

The taxman is warning advisers to get claims in on time or risk leaving their
clients empty handed.

HM Revenue and Customs is changing its time limit to claim tax from six to
four years.

Self assessment clients intending to claim for the 2004-2005 year, will need
to have their claims in by 31 March 2010. For 2005-06, it has to be in by 5
April, 2010.

Brain Redford, deputy director of intermediaries and external communication,
said he didn’t want anyone to miss out on claiming money.

“We know that most people claim what they are entitled to in the year they
make their Self Assessment tax return. However, it is worth remembering that the
time limits for claiming your tax back are changing, from six to four years,” he
said.
