Why are HMRC taking so long to process Tax refunds? HMRC encourage early submissions. I submitted my tax return on 20th Sept but HMRC are indicating that refund will not be processed until January 2024?

Hi Fionajane,
When your repayment is processed if issued by BACS it can take 5-10 working days to arrive. If issued by cheque 2-3 weeks.
If the repayment is selected for security checks then the checks can take up to 6 weeks.
If you have not yet recevied your repayment we would need to access your record to check on the progress.
Self Assessment: general enquiries
Thank you.
