2013/14 PAYE coding notice sent to wrong taxpayer

A client forwarded a 2013/14 tax code to me for checking.

It was addressed to my client but all the other details given on the P2(new) PAYE coding notice was clearly for another tax payer.

Date of issue: 28 Jan 2013

The inconsistent detils were;
  • Dear .... was addressed to someone else
  • Tax ref & NI number quoted was not my clients
  • The specific details making up the code were not applicable to my client
  • The employer mentioned was not connected to my client.

Conclusion: HMRC had sent a tax code meant for someone else to my clients address in error.

Is this a one off or a more widespread HMRC computer error?
