Tens of thousands of small company owners may have to wait until December to
get paid the incentive they were promised for filing tax returns online.
Companies with fewer than 50 staff were offered £150 to file their tax
returns online – the initiative was part of
HMRC’s drive to reduce costs and improve
A spokesman for HMRC said: ‘Less than 10% of the 1.3m employers who qualify
for the incentive are currently waiting for a cheque. Despite the current
temporary delays, most cheques will be issued more quickly than they were last
year and most employers will receive their payments before December. HMRC felt
it was important to update employers who are waiting.’
