    HMRC payable order to bank?

    HMRC payable order to bank? 3rd May 16 at 8:17 AM
    I got a letter from Hmrc last week the saying I'm due a to refund from overpayment in 2015/2016. The letter says a payable order has been made to my bank account which they will receive within 14 days of the letter , the letter is dated 21st April 2016. I have never had this before and have a couple of questions;

    1. When the money shows in my account will it be available straight away?

    2. Or is it like a cheque and even when my bank get it it will take a few days to become available?

    It's now the 3rd of May and nothing showing in my bank as of yet. Does anyone have any experience of this? Thank you in advance

    I know it makes people think that they're not really getting a refund, but the old system of just altering your tax code for the current year seemed to work ok.
    I came into this world with nothing and I've got most of it left.

    Hi there, I just wondered if you have received your tax refund into your account yet? I've had the same thing happen with hmrc. Received a letter on 27th April saying they were sending a payable order to natwest bank within 14 days. Cut a long story short no money has gone in. Numerous calls to hmrc and natwest later, it turns out Hmrc have sent a cheque not to my branch but a customer service office in Leicester. They say this is the address natwest have given them to send cheques to. Natwest telephone banking have no record of receiving any cheque, are not aware of this process being followed by hmrc and after managed to track down the direct contact phone number for this customer service centre for me. Called them they have never heard of this either and have said categorically that hmrc are lying as natwest would never give that address to send cheques to. Its not a secure procedure they would endorse for making payments for a start, that place is a small office of 20 or so people and they deal with corporate banking, do not have the facilities to process or pay in cheques, they only receive post as direct contact fao Mail for people working there from clients. If a cheque for anyone or anything to do with personal banking had been sent there it would be put as return to sender. hmrc are still saying that this is the addres natwest has given them and won't budge. Worst thing is during the filling out of the claim form online they offered me payment by cheque or direct payment into my bank, I chose direct payment into my bank, filled in all my details including my branch address under the impression it would be a transfer into my account. According to hmrc direct payment means send a cheque to your bank instead of you. Who would ever want to do this?
    We are due to get married next Friday and when the letter came saying we'd have this refund within 14 days we booked a mini-moon which we didn't think we'd get to do. We were due to pay it on Monday and have had to cancel
    Sorry for the rant but I'm just all worked up after being passed from pillar to post the last week and being lied to.
    Hmrc are now in the process of cancelling the cheque and reissuing one to come direct to me, apparently this will take them 10 weeks and their response is if I'm not happy write a letter but it's there procedure so they've done nothing wrong. Absolute joke!!!!

    Sandy you only needed to ask the question once.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    I filled in an online application for a tax rebate via GOV.uk website on the 30th April 2017 included my bank details and requested the payment to be a BACs payment (BACs payment was ignored by HMRC). On the 10th of May a letter was issued and posted to my home address which was stating how much I will get. On the 11th a payment was issued and sent to my bank . HMRC stated via the telephone number 03453003900 that it would take 2 weeks from the issue date. Annoyingly it was not a BACs payment it was issued by a Payable Order (cheque) this was sent to Santander's cheque clearing office. I received the letter which was sent on 10th on the 17th and the payable order which was issued and sent to my bank on the 11th was applied to my account via Bootle which must be the clearing office on a Saturday which was the 20th. This is showing on my bank account as uncleared funds which I presume will clear on Wednesday as it is essentially a cheque. But according to my bank it could take upto Thursday or Friday to be available. When I called HMRC they stated that each bank has a specific clearing office that they send payable orders too. I hope this helps with time scales which happened to me.
