H M Revenue & Customs Online Services Downtime
On Friday 11 October HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will be suspending their online services for three days to allow for maintenance and upgrades to the system.
The closure of the online services will begin on 6.00am Friday 11th October and will run until 6.00am on Monday 14th October. Note that submissions via 3rd party commercial software (e.g. PAYE and RTI services via 3rd party payroll software) will not be affected, although HMRC submission receipts may not be sent out until Tuesday 15th October.
This closure of its on-line services has now been postponed to a later date as HM Revenue and Customs believed that the updates would not be completed in the time schedule given.
