Hi, I appreciate your time and looking forward for your answer 1.How long the status "Bank repayment pending" usually takes to change to "issued"? 2. If there is a security check is required. When will I be contacted? 3. What does the security check consists of?

If a repayment is not selected for checks, it usually changes to issued within a few working days.

If we are doing additional security checks you will receive a letter. The checks are to verify the information that has been entered on the tax return.

Thank you.

Hi again, The last question on this page was from me. I have been waiting for the security check for two months now? My tax return doesn't require all that check. How long should it take?

If you contact our Self Assessment team we can provide an estimated timescale based on when the repayment was selected for checks.
