P85 after 3 months, didn't hear back

So I applied to HMRC back in early December for my P85 and so far I haven't heard anything back.

I saw it takes 8 weeks max so kind of concerned I haven't received either a confirmation or a refund yet.

Anyone done that recently? It's weird that you send your P45s to an PO box and you have no proof anyone ever received them and the progress of the application.

I am about to call them but if anyone has any experience please share.

They take FOREVER. I'm not sure if they automatically send you any kind of confirmation. I sent them a letter with mine, saying that I needed confirmation that I was no longer tax resident for the Swiss authorities, which they sent me, but it wasn't quick.

Indeed- They took months to process mine and ended up dragging out my small refund due a P11D which never existed from 2011. I would follow up with a call and see if it is received as then you will know and also it may prompt them to action it!

Thank you both, will give them a call. Good to know it's normal and not just mine as I was worried they lost it.

Finally got processed after 4 months and got 40% of what I expected by using their own tax calculator.

More runnings with them, useless bunch ffs.
