My client received a late CIS submission £100 penalty. It was my fault as I was ill with flu at the time and also have Parkinsons disease. HMRC deducted this from his PAYE account, and I could not appeal the penallty on line as the option was blocked. THerefore I sent them a letter on 19 February 2019 appealing against the fine, as in addition to my illness there were no sub contractors used that month. I sent the letter in the enclosed HMRC envelope to HMRC, Direct, BX 5 5BD, looks weird I know. So far no reply, I think this is disgraceful.
I also applied for MTD VAT exemption shortly thereafter on grounds ofo my age(69), disability, and only have 1 client over £85000, therefore having to purchase software for me would not be worthwhile. This I did online to HMRC. I received an automated response, but as yet no specific reply.
I am at a loss to know what to do next. Any replies would be much appreciated. Thanks.
