HMRC rips up its cheque book for online tax rebates
HMRC is pushing its electronic tax rebate service, promising to return tax refunds within three to five days, rather than the standard two-week wait for a cheque to arrive in the post. “This new service puts customers in control of their tax affairs allowing them to claim any money owed to them immediately. They can claim at a time that suits them, from a device of their choice, securely, and without needing to wait for a cheque in the post,” Ruth Owen, HMRC’s director general of customer service, explains.
