My thanks to the loyal reader who has updated me on the RTI cock up, that I wrote about a couple of days ago, involving the doubling of some employees' RTI salary records.
Seemingly the RTI year end has been processed twice by HMRC, thus doubling a large number of taxpayers' year end salary. HMRC have, apparently, realised that there has been a cock up and have stopped sending out the incorrect tax demands.
The loyal reader who told me about this says that HMRC have told him over the phone that it will take between 6-8 weeks to resolve cases, and that thousands of people (and many companies) have been affected.
I would be grateful to hear from anyone who has been affected by this cock up.
Additionally, I am at a loss to understand how a "real time" system can process the same data twice and double it up? This sounds to me more akin to a batch processing system, where the same data is fed through twice without being checked.
Tax does have to be taxing.
