Got a letter this week stating my claim is approved and will be paid within 20 working days.

 

Quibble over 2 invoices which I will sort out. No 70% payment, all done within timescales.

 

HMRC is so full of crap. I submitted claim 1st April and received the 70%. I called up about the 30% balance last week and someone said they are still processing March's claims which is clearly untrue given you submitted in July!

Finally received back the receipts and acceptance from HMRC that the balance of the vat reclaim (30%) will be paid. So the time from when they received my claim to when they had finished evaluating it was almost 8 months. I almost built the house quicker than that! Anything to do with government is an absolute disaster.

5 months to the day i started this thread and just seen the remaining 30% drop into my account...every penny claimed, nothing contested.

Original claim submitted 1st June so a week short of 8 months in all!

Blimey, 8 months.  I am going to submit mine shortly, looks like I will be lucky to see it much before the end of the year.  I can see this holding up my completion.  BUGGER.
