    I have a business but I have an accountant who is very good - but we had a different accountant this year as usual one away on a 3 month honeymoon! First time we have had a big sum back - but very happy :-D

    If you want a REAL refund, this from HMRS is ***** (hmrcisshite.blogspot.com/)


    "Elizabeth Jenkins, 86, from Bournemouth, told a national Sunday newspaper she phoned HM Revenue and Customs after spotting they had taken £33 from her account incorrectly.

    They promised a refund, but when, six months later, she had still not received it, she called again to chase up the matter.

    Elizabeth was told that a cheque had been sent – and cashed – but records showed it had been sent to the wrong person at the wrong address.

    Officials promised to send another cheque, but the widowed mum-of-two was left stunned when it eventually arrived on her doormat – because it was made out for £1,511,533.80.

    Retired civil servant Elizabeth hasn't cashed it, but said she was still waiting for the right amount.

    She said: 'I'm sure that if the roles were reversed and I had owed them money for over a year I'd probably be in jail now.

    They would hound me and hound me until I paid it back. So I’m going to hound them.'

    An HMRC spokesman said: 'We handle huge numbers of tax repayments and unfortunately things sometimes go wrong.

    When they do we apologise and sort things out as quickly as possible.' "

    Personally, I'd have banked it and let it gain interest until they asked for it back.

    We got a £2400 payment last month for under paid child tax credits from last year. These cut backs are really hitting me hard :-)

    wow - a lot of money to have been underpaid in the first place. I dont get anything like that now, but years ago it was a godsend and your rebate would equate to a monthly shortfall of around £180 a month. A lot of money to have been missing out on each month
