    72 hours before i can access my SA302

    Hi All,

    I just submitted tax return. Need to get the SA302 to the lender asap. The gov website says i have to wait 72 hours. Damn! Does it really take this long and is there a quicker way to get?


    It took them 48 hours in my case, if that helps.
    Probably longer in September / January.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


        The SA302 is identical to the 'tax calculation' anyway in all but name. Arggh i'll just have to wait.


          If you submit an online tax return on friday afternoon at 4.59 pm, the earliest time the return can be checked is 9.00 a.m on following monday morning.
          This means already 64 hours have past , how can it be checked within 72 hours by hmrc ?

          It cannot be done .


            i assume it's a technology issue rather human/working days issue. anyway i managed to get the SA302 back in 2 days which is identical to the tax calculation that is available before you even submit i think.

              Hi all,

              A friend of mine has been renting out a flat since 2004 and has not declared any of the income to HMRC in all that time.

              She wants to come clean and pay the accumulated income tax she owes by making a non-prompted disclosure using the Let Property Campaign system....

              Well done HMRC..

              None of my business, and obviously not in anyway a criticism of anybody, but If I had had a friend who I found out had been fiddling tax for 16 years they'd no longer be my friend.

              Fair enough. Thanks for your advice. It is on cash basis.

              I guess it would only save her 50 odd quid anyway, maybe less than £80 once the fine and interest is added. I guess she'll have to swallow that.
              Once again, thanks JP and Gordon for your help.

              I'm from UK but live overseas and recently discovered that I should be registered as an overseas landlord. I've done a bit of research on what it involves and it seems a bit of a headache - tenants have to fill out forms and pay tax from their rent direct to HMRC. If anyone here is registered as an...

              armour - Sorry, I don't know.
              It might depend on whether you're accounting on the cash basis (in which case I suspect not) or the accrual basis (when it's possible).

              But it's not something I ever got involved with when the W&T allowance existed, and all of the practical guidance...

              Thanks JP, that's clear. I'll put the bathroom in with the income tax then. I guess it's much of a muchness anyway as the associated reduction in interest and fine will probably equal out.

              I have one last question, if you'd be so kind.

              During the year she had to make the eviction,...

              You fill out this form requesting to have rental income without deduction of tax and pay it yourself;

              The 10% was for furnishings, so built in stuff should be ok to claim.
              The bathroom refurb depends on what was done if it was simply a replacement, it's maintenance, if it was a significant upgrade, it's likely to be part capital/part maintenance.
              If it's a new bathroom, it's probably ca...

              Seems pretty clear there JP. I'll go ahead and alter my calculations

              One more thing, My friend had a bathroom refurb and a built in oven and hob replaced during the period when the flat was let furnished. I'm pretty sure that these costs can be detucted in addition to the 10% W&T, but...
