HMRC don't want the money

HMRC don't want the money

Didn't find your answer?

I have just chased HMRC on behalf of a client who had not received a statement re the £4000 tax he owes for 2009/10 although the return was filed online 11th August. They first tried to claim that it might have gone to his old address, which he left 24 years ago. Then it was that they would send out a copy. When I challenged them as to a copy of what they then admitted they hadn't sent it.

Don't they want the tax now or am I misreading the situation?

No & Yes (probably)

No - they do not want it now, assuming that it is the balance for 2009/10, which is not due until 31st January 2011.

Statements showing liabilities to be paid at the end of January usually arrive the week before Christmas!

Strange. Some of my clients have already received HMRC statements

STRANGE

..that you are chasing HMRC for not pursuing money that is not even due yet? 

No doubt you would be on here bashing them even harder if they had tried to collect it early.

Sometimes it seems they are in a no win situation with some people. Yeah they're in a mess and reform is needed from root to branch, but come on, this is absurd!!

Dubda - as I said in original post I am doing it on behalf of a client. He's been told it's not due yet but insists I chase.I quote him "I don't want to owe anybody anything and it might help the country." The client pays for my time what can I do in this situation except what he asks?

Then get him to pay it...

Send a cheque to the accounts office or pay online... but don't blame HMRC for not issuing statements when the liability is not due until 31 January 2011.
