Reviews and Appeals

Section 58: Extension of time limit for applications for review

257.Section 58 allows the Commissioners for HMRC to extend the time limit within which a person can request a review of a decision. If a person wants to be granted an extension of time they must apply to the Commissioners within 6 months of the end of the period in which they should have asked for a review, setting out the reasons for their application.

258.The Commissioners may extend the time limit if they are satisfied that there were special circumstances that meant it was not practicable for the person to request a review within 30 days of being notified of the decision, and that it is reasonable to allow that extension.

259.Subsection (4) provides that a person cannot make another application if the Commissioners refuse their application for an extension to the time limit.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
