VAT return credit - how long?

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me how long the VAT office generally take to refund vat when in credit in any given quarter? I seem to recall last time it was pretty quick(within a week), but can't quite remember.

 

Cheers

Normally within a forthnight of uploading your VAT. I have been waiting for a Tax return for the last 6 weeks emailed my accountant who said that he had at least 20 other clients who were waiting for payment from HMRC for VAT or TAx to be repaid.

This was the reply I received from the accountant:

 

 

They had a strike on and just after 31 January which has hampered obtaining tax repayments, and if it is any consolation, you are not the only client of mine this has happened to.

 

 

 

That is the official line, although as the country was supposedly running out of money in February, I suspect that the word came down from the Treasury to freeze tax repayments for a period. Certainly, whilst it sounds cynical, this would not be the first time I have seen this happen.

 

 

 

After Pastygate, and the “self created” petrol crisis, (one way to get people spending and stop a recession!!), who can say??

surely that would have hampered collections by greater monetary value than repayments
