I agree that is confusing as Expenses and Benefits Booklet 408 Section 122 to 124 (12.4) states
''The Price of the car... is the inclusive price published by the manufacturer of the car...It includes standard accessories, any relevant taxes (Value Added Tax, car tax (where appropriate), any customs or excise duty, any tax chargeable as if it were a customs duty) and delivery charges, but excludes the new car registration fee because it is an administration fee, not a tax'.
My assumption is that car tax is VED because it is not always appropriate as some cars such as Prius don't have any.
Clarification would be good.

Thanks. I agree with your split. I have noticed that I excluded VED which I shouldn't have done so have added it back in.
Looking around the internet, many places erroneously state to omit the VED (Car Tax) from the list price which is shocking, as most are major manufacturers sites.
The car was specified for the Director by himself so I also hope doesn't regret the paint protect!

Surely your employer would simply say the notice period started 24th April and your employment ended 30th April. You had the luxury of one month off Gardening Leave, very generous. If you have worked there less than 2 years, you have even less ability to contest it.
Settlement Agreements are technical and need to be drawn up/agreed through solicitors incurring legal costs on both sides which wouldn't help either of you.

It beggars belief in this day and age that you can't simply send an email to HMRC.

I have used Access Payroll for years - great support, timely updates and AE functionality built in. Never had the need to look elsewhere.

Thanks for your help. I couldn't find anywhere a definitive answer on whether Holidays can be qualifying days so I phoned HMRC and was put through to the Head Office for guidance.
They said it was 7 days SSP = the fit note needs to have a start date covering the whole absence starting on the 1st day of his operation/holiday, the qualifying days would start on the same day and, after 3 waiting days, he would have 2 days SSP in the 1st week. These 2 days would be 'grossed up' to full pay in the Payroll as they are Holidays. The 2nd week would be SSP only for the 5 days.

Yes that is a good point, I will look to pay the lower rate. I think the way I propose is the cleanest and easiest way to manage the process.

Having to face these situations on a monthly basis, you'll find that the Liquidator (despite stating that they will act in the interests of Creditors) will put hurdles and dismissals all the way through the process and you'll end up with nothing, despite the blatant actions of the Directors to stitch everyone up. Sadly, your best bet is to find an effective Debt Collector as you'll get no help elsewhere and the Directors know this and will laugh in your face. If anyone knows of any, let me know.

When Employees reach 65 you can only change the status once you have seen Documentary Evidence of their DOB - passport or birth certificate. Otherwise, HMRC state you can't change it. Maybe they need to tighten up their procedures.

If you have special pricing from your supplier for the goods and provide an added value and complete service to your customer and charge a higher price for these goods then you don't want to be sharing with your customer your cost prices.
