Hi - does anyone know what the telephone number is to contact HMRC regarding registration for an ASA. I sent off the items by post last month and I am still waiting to hear from them. Until I hear back from them I cannot even get an ASA. I know it said it would take approx 28 days to get back, but I am beginning to wonder if they have received my info.
As had to be done by post, just wondering if anyone knows what the best telephone number is to contact them
I am in the same boat. I sent my letter using track & trace. It was delivered to them on May 2nd. I feel completely lost at sea at the moment and will possibly lose some clients if I don't hear back soon. 😞
Hi, I finally got my letter - was dated 30 May. So it had my confirmation of agent registration on it and my self assessment agent code. Spent some time on HMRC trying to figure out what I was meant to do, as seemed as though some of it had been done, but managed to sign up for ASA account, and then after that and with reading the back of the letter managed to get agent ID and reference numbers for the PAYE and VAT (I'm not VAT registered) and now I am waiting for activation codes - seemed the SA Agent Code was the part that came by post, but need to sign up for that to get an activation code. I think when I receive them I shall finally have all I need. I just printed off all the numbers and noted on them what was what as they also need to add the agent reference to the govt gateway account which can take a while.
It is all a bit mind boggling. I only have a couple of clients at the moment re VAT. Luckily the accountants are prepared to file the returns for me if I don't get sorted. I sent my docs off at the end of April, so hopefully Heather you will get yours back soon.
That is fantastic News - Congratulations!!
As it has been over 7 weeks since I sent my registration letter (By recorded delivery) I can only assume that it has been lost in translation. Have spent multiple 45 minute periods on phone to HMRC pressing numbers and holding. I think the best thing for me to do is print and re-send? Hoping for the best - wish me luck!
I hope your Activation codes have arrived, and you're now free to provide full services for your clients 😊
