HMRC will grant extensions to the recent 31 January online filing deadline to those affected by the ongoing flooding in Somerset.
Claims for extensions will be judged on a case by case basis, and extensions could be granted for months.
An HMRC spokesman is quoted by the Telegraph:Those wishing to claim an extension should call the Payment Support Service. The helpline number is 0300 200 3835, and is open from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm, Monday to Friday and 8.00 am to 4.00 pm, Saturday and Sunday.
“We know that some individuals and businesses may find it difficult to meet their obligations to HMRC as a result of the current extreme weather. We will do all we can to help."
