Appeals against self assessment penalties

Is anyone able to answer the following questions please?

Do HMRC actually issue acknowledgements for appeals?
If so, how long does it take them?

Thank you in advance.


  • HMRC will never send an acknowledgment receipt of a penalty appeal.

    Their contact centre advisors can check the current timescale for decisions if you  call.

    We are still waiting for a decision on a penalty appeal since March 2015. Still no decision after four letters (two never received apparently) have been forwarded.

    The last appeals letter was August 2015 and we have been advised the earliest we will receive a decision is 15 November 2015.
