Hi, I was working for a company until early this year when they folded. I was a sales director ad was o an annual directors PAYE scheme.
I'd been receiving letters from HMRC since about 3 years ago requesting self assessment to be completed, so I queried these to the accountant at our company and he said to contact HMRC and to tell them that I was on a PAYE scheme, and I duly did this.
About a month ago I had a collection agency call on me on behalf of HMRC so I called HMRC to query this and was told that they needed the returns completed. I downloaded the forms, completed the returns and sent them off; I owed no tax for any of the years. However HMRC are still demanding that I pay the fines and interest.
I am at a loss, since I was on the understanding that we had correctly provided returns via PAYE. Can anyone give me some advice please?
