Are you thinking of a hold harmless letter?

Don't forget to obtain a 5% repayment supplement from HMRC for taking over 31 days. It is not being cheeky, it's a real HMRC requirement (unless they send a letter querying the repayment, in which case the clock stops).
See VAT Notice 700/58

I have one of these forms to complete. I am based in the UK.
Can you give me direction on how best to contact the IRS for help filling out this form? Preferably a telephone number I can call.
Any help is much appreciated.

Kick Sage to the curb?
I for one have lost all confidence in Sage.
I feel that having suggested the product to colleagues and clients, the poor quality of the Sage Drive product has potentially damaged my reputation.
I have had numerous broken promises made to me by Sage over the years and have been for a little while now, where appropriate, making alternative arrangements for clients bookkeeping solutions.
I would still like to the see the main online bookkeeping service providers raise their game a little (I struggled to find one that produced professional looking sales invoices), but I pleased that they appear to be providing comparatively good products and services.
Whilst I would hate to see the demise of Sage, I feel a little 'reckoning' may not be amiss.

Perhaps someone can point out a rebuttal to this, but:
What if the company were to charge the director for his private use at a commercial rate?

Is an e personal vendetta specific to electronic retailers?
Well spotted, and duly corrected. I'm using a rubbish wireless keyboard today that caused the error.
However you raise a good point, perhaps I have an iVendetta?

Childrens Swimming lessons
I am aware of a client handled by a colleague who was notorious for trying to claim for everything. One of the strangest items were children's swimming lessons. Quite how that related to his work of selling double glazing was beyond us.
Oh, and the occasional Saturday afternoon Cinema ticket was also considered unusual.
I have also come across the apparently now common: Helicopter for builders, Seaside Caravans (clients work nowhere near the coast), Quad-bikes, Pool-tables (again a builder), VAT claims on VAT payments, 'kinky' shop receipts. The list goes on...
Mind you, the thing that gets me are the regular iPad purchases in mid-December, and not just because of a personal vendetta I have against Apple.
