Backdating

Please can someone give me a second opinion. New client contact – client works under “umbrella” company via agency, received pay over year, has no Tax & NI deducted receives payments gross. Manual worker, head in the sand now realises he needs to do something.

Received circa £60K over year.  Any thoughts on how best to mitigate the tax… Tax year 2011-2012.

Payroll

Ask the umbrella company to process a payroll and then not make any more payments until the total net pay equals what has been paid

Sure it's a umbrella?
Are you sure your client is working via a umbrella company?

If so, the PAYE/NI obligations are theres?

Thank you, I'm wondering if its a scam! I can't say the company name just yet but I have now had sight of some signed contracts that clearly state that PAYE deductions would be made and the net would be payable. It all seems very strange almost three company names before you get back to the actual employer. Thank you for your comments I appreciate its all a little vague, I suspect that the agency involved may be the driving force behind it - this chap has worked in one location for one company over a long period !

Backdating

Perhaps the thinking beyond the first response you received is that 'you can't change history'.  So the 'backdating' of documents / arrangements etc could well be a criminal offence.

It can be appropriate however to make a record now of the state of affairs which existed in 2011/12.  I would not refer to that as 'backdating' though.

Backdating

I'm sorry that's how it came across - I now understand the first comment, it did not cross my mind to backdate the records I was simply trying to confirm possible tax arrangements. I understand HMRC mark it as a "failed to register" but they do not fine...
