Self Assessment helplines extending hours this weekend

27 January 2016

We published a news item recently detailing what you should do if you are unable to complete your client’s tax returns by 31 January due to severe weather. Further to this HMRC’s blog for tax agents has said that as the 31 January deadline falls on a Sunday, their SA helpline and the Online Services Helpdesk (OSH) will be taking calls throughout this weekend, with extended hours on Saturday (8am to 6pm) and Sunday (9am to 5pm).

HMRC also has a range of online support to help customers with their returns, including web chat, webinars and YouTube guidance.
