Our practice made a mistake last year when filing the P35's - our payroll staff marked a Client's P35 as having been filed when it hadn't been.
We were unaware of the problem until the Revenue issued a penalty notice in Nov '10 for £700.00. We appealed on the grounds that this was unreasonable - the appeal was rejected and we then asked for a review which upheld the decision.
Is it worth going to tribunal ?? We have so little faith in the system that we can see that it will just get thrown out on the grounds that we are technically in the wrong.
But we feel very strongly that this is nothing short of leglised theft. Any ideas ??
