HMRC tax refund delays?

Hi all,

Curious to check if anyone is in a similar situation to mine… I’ve submitted the self assessment with my accountant back in March and have yet to receive the refund that I’m owed. Chased HMRC every month since May and they give a typical blank answer with no real information.

Funny how when you owe the government anything they will hound you out until they get their way, but on the flip side we’re just left here standing :upside_down_face:

Any suggestions from more experienced folks in here other than just “waiting”?

I’ve always got mine within a week. Maybe it’s your accountant you should be chasing.

Normally receive mine very quick. Actually just finished mine today for submission tomorrow so will let you know

I spoke with HMRC on the phone as I had other related questions, but they did mention the turn around in June was looking like 2 months out, so it sounds like that’s unusually slow.
Main this is probably confirming they’ve recieved the documents well in advance of any 3 year expiry dates (but if you have an accountant, they are probably best to advice)

I have been waiting since April as well also three other friends of mine :cry: I was quite concerned until I mentioned it to them.
