HMRC Computer Glitch

Another day and another HMRC computer integration glitch.  A client of ours has received an enquiry into his Tax Return for the year ended 5 April 2014 stating that he was in receipt of child benefit from 7 January 2013 and this information was not disclosed on his Tax Return.  This is certainly news to him, as his son was born on 6 March 2015!  Therefore, there was no high income child benefit charge to report in the Tax Return for 2013/14.  An appeal has been lodged against the assessment and we await HMRC’s response.
