We have a client who has been denied E.S.A. because he doesn't have enough "stamps" on (i.e. Class 2 contributions). Needless to say . . . . . our Tax Return "instructed" them to take the Class 2 but they failed to do so. Does anybody have any easy remedies for this situation? We have asked the client to, initially, contact ESA and to tell them that it's all due to HMRC's actions and not to his . . . . . is this likely to help? We would like an easy solution (as it's December and it's getting hectic!).
