Secret Address - Follow Up
Last October I wrote about the problems that the post office were having recognising HMRC's new postcode (BX5 5AT) used for VAT returns.
Accountancy have followed this up, in their January edition, and note that that HMRC postcodes are not on the "postal address file because they are non geographic postcodes".
HMRC then went on to tell Accountancy that this is not a problem, and even if it was a problem "the responsibility lies with the post office".
So that's alright then!
Hopefully no one has been classified as "filing late", because of delays caused by this non geographic postcode.
Tax does have to be taxing.
