Has anyone had any luck with getting PAYE liabilities arising from the coding debacle written off. I have three people, that I am working for pro bono, where I am trying to get their liabilities written off. My initial approach was using ESC A19, but HMRC have turned it down.
Strictly they are correct as they have 12 months from the end of the tax year in which they receive the information to respond. So P35s for 2008/09 received by HMRC from the employers in 2009/10 demonstrating that the tax code was incorrect, gives them until 5 April 2011 to issue a demand. Most of the demands were issued in Nov/Dec 2010.
Has anyone had any success with ESC A19 or any other approach. Suggestions gratefully received.
