Good afternoon We regularly reclaim excess tax deducted on dividends from a Swiss company, which requires HMRC to confirm our UK residence on Swiss form 86. It's always taken some months to get the stamped forms back from HMRC, but we're still waiting for the return of the ones sent in June 2022, or indeed any reply. Is there a particular problem with this department? Should we re-send the docs? thanks

So, just me then?

As we will require further information from you to check we have received your forms and have them processed for you,
please contact our Self Assessment helpline on 0300 200 3310.

Thank you.

Thanks for getting back. I was eventually able to speak to a helpful advisor, who told me that I should get the form back by the end of October - so after about 16 months. There is, apparently, something of a backlog.

Thank you. I did get through to a helpful advisor, who told me I should get it back by the end of October. That would be 16 months from the date of submission, of course.
