Error or mistake claim
One of the less well publicised items in the Budget was on error or mistake claims. Currently, if you discover a mistake on your tax return and have overpaid tax as a result, individuals have five years and ten months (and companies six years) in which to make a claim to have the tax repaid. This time limit reduces to four years with effect from April 2010.
Now would be a good time to have a look at the past.
