HMRC delays in connection with BPR claims on gifts of shares?

We have had a report from one of our committee volunteers who on 6 February 2017 sent to HMRC forms IHT100, IHT100a, D32 & D38 in connection with a gift of shares on which they had claimed business property relief.

They have now been told that, because of workloads, HMRC will be unable to look at this for up to six months.
