    HMRC Self Assessment Repayments 2016 6th Apr 16 at 10:26 AM
    Well... It's that time of year again!

    Thought I'd start a thread after last years long wait for repayments, hopefully we will receive our repayments quicker this year????

    So I've submitted mine today, 6th April at 8am. I will post updates as and when...

    Hi everyone been following everyone's posts over the last few days. My husband friend did his SA on the 13th may still have received anything. I spoke to someone on the chat web yesterday they said they issued a date the 20th April but got picked up for security checks and had been sent over on the 3rd may and won't hear anything until the 31st may, (we go on holiday on the 3rd ��) has anyone been in this situation before and how long after the checks did you receive your money?
    Thank you. X

    I think it just depends.. everyone's seems to be going through security checks just now. Some on here submitted on the 6th April & are still waiting. I submitted mine on 7th April & it just got issued today. I really don't think you can put a number on how long it takes. This has been the longest I have ever waited.

    It's a bloody nightmare isn't it. Every other year it's taken a week. In all fairness Iv read these forums from last year and year before and it seems everyone is being told different things every time. I spoke to one lady yesterday then thought I'd speak to someone again to see if they would say the same thing and they did, and then again today. Will just have to wait till next Wednesday I guess then contact again.

    Did you phone them at all? If so did they say what the delay was. Next week will be 4 weeks it's been security checked surely it can't take any longer.

    What HMRC call "security checks" is what the rest of the World calls "slow pay". I've asked any number of times any number of HMRC officers what exactly they were checking on behalf of clients. I have never had an answer, but sometimes the officers there and then got on to another department and got them to do the payment order that same day!

    have filed mine 28th June. last year, I accidentally gave them the wrong figure (of cis that I thought id paid) but once I gave them the correct figure it was sorted fairly quickly. Do they check more thoroughly the next year, if you made a mistake the first year ? just don't want to wait too long. wondering if the backlog has been cleared now, as there seemed to be some minor glitches with the april returns. Anyone had theirs quickly this year ?
