Plans to reduce tax repayment claim time limits

A proposed change in tax law in this year’s Finance Bill could leave many taxpayers disadvantaged.
Currently when HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) makes an error or mistake in an individual’s tax affairs he can claim back taxes (with interest added) for the last 6 years. HMRC now wants to cut the time limit so it is only liable for repayments for the previous 4 years. This cannot be good news - not when HMRC can go back to collect tax for up to 20 years.
