I thought HMRC post was supposed to be scanned and logged but it appear not. Just phoned in respect of one client where
Letter sent 14.11.2014 – SEIS refund – I have just been told I cannot expect a response before 21.1.2015
Letter sent 27.11.2014 - EIS refund – I have just been told I cannot expect a response before 3.2.2015
In both cases letter was clearly headed with nature of refund. HMRC have just told me they cannot even say at this stage if either letter received as not logged on their system.
This is just completely hopeless especially when it takes so long on the phone just to find out nothing !
