payments on account

SA PAYMENTS ON ACCOUNT

I have a client for whom we completed a claim to reduce payments on account for 2016/17 - based on known change in circumstances and best estimates at the time.

We were £126 out and HMRC have issued a collection letter from Debt Management demanding immediate payment (£63 due 31 Jan and £63 31 July 2017). Arithmetic understood but seems unnecessarily harsh in the cicumstances. There was of course never any intention to "take the micky". Anyone else had similarly seemingly petty experiences?

Petty petty. Had a letter this week from HMRC with a threatening attitude that the box "Is he a director" had not been ticked on 16/17 SA. Could it be amended and re filed.
Customer Relations does not enter into HMRC's mindset. Have you ever been on to them and tried to make them laugh! Have a go next time.

To be fair they are correct and I suppose it comes down to how the letter is worded (which is probably a template "pay up or we're sending the boys round").

They've got £2.00 late paid interest running at the moment as well
