HM Revenue and Customs have published lists of certain instances where the Government Gateway or HMRC server will incorrectly report
data validation errors when a SA900 Trust and Estate tax return is being submitted online. This could occur even though you have
entered data correctly and the software is submitting what you have entered. The likely cause of this is an incorrect data validation being applied in the HMRC server.
Specials and Exclusions details published by the HM Revenue & Customs outlines circumstances in which the Government Gateway or
HMRC servers are likely to report validation errors when you submit your SA900 Trust and Estate tax returns even though your returns may be correct.
Please note, these issues are caused by HMRC server validations and are not within Andica Software.
Special Cases represent issues that have been identified and HMRC have recommended workaround in the event returns are rejected.
This document is primarily intended for software developers to allow us to accommodate the issues outlined into our software and wherever possible,
we may have taken care of these workarounds within the software. However, there may be instances where it has not been possible for us to include
these special cases. In some situations you will get a rejection but by following the recommended workaround you will be able to file online.
Please note this list is subject to change and therefore it is advisable that you check regularly for updates to this document.
Exclusions represent issues that have been identified but HMRC have not been able to resolve or
provide a workaround for some of these issues.
If the above applies to you, if available, review the workaround to see if that resolves the
"HMRC has said that tax returns filed on paper after 31 October will normally
trigger a penalty (a maximum of £100 for individuals). HMRC added that they may
accept an appeal and remove the penalty for the late submission of a return where
a reasonable excuse exists. Please refer to HMRC web page on http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/online/excuse-missed-deadline.htm and contact them directly for advice."
Where customers advise the HMRC that one or more of the reasons shown on the Exclusions List prevented them from filing their SA return online
they will accept an appeal against a penalty for the late submission of a paper return on the basis that they had a reasonable excuse. Customers
will need to submit a written 'claim for reasonable excuse' form.
