HMRC argument!

I think I've posted about this topic previously, but now it's really winding me up!

Basically I have a client who, for several years, has received employment income and army pension income, both including his personal allowance - which is obviously incorrect.

HMRC have noticed this and wrote to him saying he owes nearly £5k for 07/08, 08/09, 09/10 & 10/11.

I appealed after some very helpful posts on here under ESC A19 (after all, it's not his fault!) but they have written back and rejected the appeal based on the fact that they weren't aware of his army pension income until the end-of-year returns were submitted.

I find this quite strange as he's been receiving this since 2000 so surely they would have known before the 07/08 year?

Any advice would be much appreciated as I'm in the process of appealing again - the only thing I don't want to do is open up a can of worms and have them realise he hasn't been taxed properly since 2000!
