    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...

    Part of wot cal1980 said might be true but I'm a sub contractor and after talking to the couple that do are wages and accounts for main firm work for they've said they have till Jan 2019 to submit all tax and vat bills although usually around July time they finalise it all as they double check sub contractors earnings payments and what tax/cis is due then pay off in a lump sum which never knew till now but they have a hmrc handbook that states hmrc use pay now check later so like we all make mistakes there pay us but once they have everything they could say owe us a bit extra or we owe them some money

    From what ive heard from other people on this forum, do not keep requesting as it could mess with the computer their end. Could wait until tomorrows update and possibly phone them? Im unsure myself as i have never had to physically request my repayment, its always been automatic

    Have you checked you filled in the return correctly? From memory there were some posts on one of these threads last year and people had filled in the return saying they didn't have to pay class 4 National insurance even they were self employed.

    Could be class 4? Iíll find out tomorrow when I phone. There was an adjustment on the 12th April, this was done from the hmrc side. Im assuming I maybe owe more than the adjustment hmrc made, and if I pay whatever else they will release the payment? Enquiries over? No?

    HMRC are checking your return. They will write to you and ask about anything they need extra information about. Could be about all sorts of things, your CIS tax, expenses or, based on these threads last year, you may have claimed you dont need to pay national insurance when some is due.

    The end result may be that they alter your return and this could change the amount of any repayment you think is due.

    I Am claiming for 4.5k after earning 38k in last 12 months, CIS 20% deducted every month and paid on time and every year for the past 8 years I have selected 'voluntarily pay class 4 national insurance and also class 2 national insurance which is around £397 therefore left with 4.1k but I have never ever had a problem with it being paid, EVERYONE who's payment status shows 'not yet used' I would strongly advise to amend self assesment and voluntarily pay national insurance class 4 and 2 if you have to, I would also advise no body to contact HMRC about the 'not yet used' as you are then on the radar and looked at by humans rather than computers, trust me, my partner is an accountant and has dealt with HMRC for over 10 years hope this helps, payments should be made today and show on updated site tommorow.
