A former client (but still a friend) had a company he ran for a couple of years. Took no salary but did have a paye scheme.
Business failed and all creditors were paid by the director. No taxes due.
Company was struck off in jan 2012.
Unfortunately no nil p35 was done prior to strike off. He has been getting letters for last year now asking for paye returns. He has called and said "there is no company so a return cant be done" i have called and explained similar but hmrc insist they want a return. But as i see it no one can do one now.
He. Has just recd the £1200 penalty letter so now is really scared.
Does anyone know an "easy" way to get this put to bed . As i see it retospectively doing the returns is incorrect now or am i missing a trick......?
