I contacted HMRC by phone and the penalty is being removed and I am being removed from self assessment. I'm not sure why the department that sends out fines works so much quicker than the department that reviews self assessment removal forms though.
I completed my request for removal from self assessment form online on 28th Jan. I only completed it because I claimed child benefit, which no longer happens. The progress tracker on my HMRC account stops at 18th Feb as the estimated completion, and there is a message saying it's taking longer than usual.
However, I've just been sent a message saying I've been fined £100 for not completing a self assessment form. Does anyone know what's going on? Will I have to pay the fine?
