HRMCBecause of internal disruption caused by staff taking industrial action today, HM Revenue and Customs have announced that taxpayers submitting their returns on 1 or 2 February will not be ‘unfairly fined’.
However, there is a catch – the extension appears to apply only to taxpayers who attempt to get through to HMRC today to ask for advice and fail to get through.
