Hiya i have become vat registered and have put in a claim for a VAT repayment which has been approved, When first registering there was a problem with my bank details so i was told my repayment would be sent via payable order unfortunately the business account i use does not accept cheques , I spoke to yourselves via phone and i was then able with a agents help to add bank details i was told by the advisor the payable order would be cancelled and i would get a bank repayment, I also sent a form requesting to change bank details but obviously i have now done this myself online , How long roughly should i need to wait to get the repayment Many Thanks

If you have recorded your new bank details online then this can take a few weeks to update.

Once these details have been updated then you should expect a repayment in to your bank within the next 10 days following that.

If you need to get some progress on your request to change your bank details then you can speak to our Variation Depasrtment on 0300 322 7872 and they will be happy to help you.

Thank you.

Yes the form you sent to change the bank details will be ignored as you have managed to do this online.

You said that you have spoken to an adviser who were able to cancel the Payable Order for you,if this is the case then we should be releasing this as a bank transfer to you.

To make sure though I would speak to the Vat Helpline on 03002003700 who will be able to confirm what is happening and give appropriate timescales.
