Update on self-assessment online filing issues for 2016/17

Oct 23, 2017

HMRC have provided a further update on this matter which has been covered several times in recent months in Chartered Accountants Tax News. Version 7 of the exclusions is now live on GOV.UK and includes a number of newly identified exclusion cases.

If a taxpayer filed a 2016-17 return online or in paper prior to the updated calculation, which is due to go live today 23 October 2017 or files a return online or in paper after 23 October 2017 with an incorrect tax liability, HMRC advise that they are committed to identifying where the tax liability is incorrect and to issuing a correct calculation.

HMRC will confirm the position with the fix as soon as it is released which will then be followed up with a notification in the Tax Agent Blog.
