It does depend on a range of factors as to how long an enquiry will take and the standard time frame in anywhere between several weeks and several months.
When a claim enquiry is in progress, there can be changes made to the methodology, and there will be an opportunity to alter the processes for record-keeping in preparation for any claims that are made later. Most companies that go through one of these enquiries typically utilise the feedback they are given from HMRC to streamline their future claim process.
