How long does HMRC take before issuing a self-assessment tax-clearance?

If you file and return for self-assessment in January (on or before the 31st), when does HMRC approve (or otherwise) of this return?

HMRC does not "approve" or "accept" your return. How could they? They don't know if it correct.

When you complete a tax return online HMRC will calculate your tax liability at that time. However, HMRC state that your Tax records will be updated within 72 hours.
Unless HMRC come back to you with a query, which could be at any time, you can assume that they have accepted your tax return.
