    I have just called DBS and they don't have an application under my name. HMRC is really taking their time with that... this is pathetic now
    How long ago did you send off for the dbs?

    Same here. Filled in the health declaration Monday last week and still haven't heard from them. I'm band O in London too.
    Yep unfortunately they take their time. Been waiting since July for my checks to be completed.

    I wouldn't worry about this as when they do request a DBS it'll be done quickly. It's just them actually requesting it that takes long.

    For people looking for time reference, I received my email asking to proceed to a DBS check on the 24th of September and there is still no application for a DBS from HMRC in my name. Absolute shambles

    Don't think it'll be anytime soon I've just phoned up nothing sent over for myself. This is from 2 months ago since the checks stage was supposedly beginning. It's a bit worrying when you ring up the automated message says checks can take up to 18 weeks.

    Just realised mine was 2 months ago from August. No health forms for me just accepting the offer and filling out the reference sections then the status changes to conducting checks, we will contact you when these are complete. Nothing else we can do from there just only to wait.

    Oh I see, I got the same offer in August, but have presented my documents and sent off Health and DBS confirmation stuff. Seems like each office is working at really different paces, thought it'd be a more standard centralised kind of thing.

    Still different within. I know of people who received job offeres the same day as me for different roles but DBS was complete weeks ago and the have already started in the same location as mine.

    That sucks, at least you know the jobs are real. Half expecting HMRC to turn around and tell me my job no longer exists.

    I had this on 21st September, rang DBS today and HMRC haven't applied for it. Its taking atleast 20 working days for a DBS to even come through so going off that time frame we won't get a start date until mid November IF DBS are sent off asap. Its absolutely ridiculous!

    At this stage I think mid November is even a little optimistic
