That link doesn't tell you how to set the scheme as annual. Do you write in to HMRC or submit an RTI return of some kind?
VAT office just as bad.
Similar situation. VAT office call and leave me a message, asking for me to call them back. They refuse to leave a client name or VAT number. I call back and they ask what it's regarding. I explain the message I got, and they refuse to help me as I don't have the client name or VAT number!
If the original caller really needs the information that badly, she will call back (I hope).
When my clients need an SA302 I can't print them out from HMRC as I use commercial software. I simply call the agent line at HMRC and they send them out in the post, usually within a couple of days.
It's not a big problem getting them, the agent helpline can be surprisingly good for some things!
Glad I found this thread
Couldn't access VAT or PAYE online yesterday and today, and when you go the the service availability page, it just says 'this page is not available'! Thought it was me going mad but at least now I know it was planned.
Out of interest, if you swap from Sage to Moneysoft, can you transfer the historic data easily from one to the other?
I have suddenly received a number of 'acknowledgement' emails this week for nil P35s sent online before 19 May (15-17 May in this case). These have turned up a few days AFTER penalty notices for not submitting the P35s.
I have appealed, enclosing copies of the revlevant acknowledgement emails, but I have also had to deal with a number of irate clients who think I have missed the deadline and landed them with a penalty.
I am hopeful that all the penalties will be rescinded as the acknowledgement emails show the date that we originally submitted the nil P35 notifications as being before 19 May. But who knows?
Thanks for that.
Thanks for that. The companies are associated as they are controlled by the partners, so yes they should all count in that case.
Thanks very much, that's very useful. Do you have a link to HMRC saying that?
HMRC also say gross
Thanks. I finally got through to someone at HMRC who said the same thing. But interestingly, he said that Parliament were debating changes to the SAA rules tomorrow and I should hold fire on my client's return until after the debate, in case there were any changes that affected him.
Now these websites have been closed down, how do I get the date of first registration for a client who has lost their VAT certificate? They won't give it to me on the phone.
