I got an appeal going on my self assessment HMRC bill, The person dealing with my case had been relocated due to a reshuffle within HMRC (as told by HMRC staff). Now i been getting lettersd from HMRC Debt Management Department, i told them i got an appeal going through and once that is settled i will set up a payment plan and start to pay. As my case has not still been allocated to a HMRC tax inspector so i was at a loss whilst these guys keeping coming to my house.
They are asking for £80,000.00 and my accountant worked out £40,000.00 and i have also managed to arrange up to £35,000.00 from family and friends.
Now i been given a week to pay the bill or they will proceed with bankruptcy proceeding please advise as to my options as i want to like this to happen:
1) get a HMRC officer to talk to me or my accountant
2) Pay them £35,00.00 and arrange a payment plan for the rest
3) Also carry on the dispute through my accountant with HMRC on the disputed amounted
4) Can i get longer then 12 month period to pay back the amount (if they request £80,000.00)
All advise is appreciated as i am really going through a rough patch at the moment and need help and guidance
