If you have missed deadlines for claim periods from 1 November 2020, HMRC may accept late claims if you have:
  • A reasonable excuse
  • Taken reasonable care to try and claim on time
  • Claimed without delay as soon as you were able to
Examples of reasonable excuses would be:
  • A close relative or your partner died shortly before the claim deadline
  • You had an unexpected stay in hospital that prevented you from dealing with your claim
  • You had a serious or life-threatening illness, including Coronavirus related illnesses, which prevented you from making your claim (and no one else could claim for you)
  • A period of self-isolation prevented you from making your claim (and no one else could make the claim for you)
  • Your computer or software failed just before or while you were preparing your online claim
  • Service issues with HMRC online services prevented you from making your claim
  • A fire, flood or theft prevented you them from making your claim
  • Postal delays that you could not have predicted prevented you from making your claim
  • Delays related to a disability you have prevented you from making your claim
  • An HMRC error prevented you from making your claim
If you have missed the deadline as a result of one of these excuses, you can make a request to submit a late claim by visiting the government guidance page.
