How long for HMRC to respond to tax on a Simple Estate

As per the executor of my late relative's estate (having sold all of the assets to cash) will soon be reporting the tax owed on this 'simple' estate by writing a letter to the HMRC with details of interest and dividends received into the estate during the administration period.

As some of the queues we've had to deal with have lasted into multiple months,  I wondered whether there was anyone out there who has had to do a similar thing recently and had knowledge on how long it might take for the HMRC to reply on how to pay the tax due.

Many thanks.
