So after all of the comments, we are back to the P11D question. That is where I would start.
By way of an update I have spoken to a HMRC technical officer who said that manual P11Ds must be prepared with a covering letter explaining why a % of the total benefit has been allocated to each employee. If the car was shared throughout the year then the 'Dates car was available' should be left blank on each P11D.
What a waste of time and highlights the constraints of software.
Just as I said but be aware that they will put the full 100% in their tax codes and not 50%.
I used to deal with a case like this and sent in paper forms with the full amounts crossed out and 50% written in large figures. I also sent a covering letter but each year I would phone up as they inevitably taxed them on 100% each.
What do the P11D's say? If he just has an overdrawn DLA, that is a different matter. No doubt the umbrella company has paid the full S455 tax to HMRC!
I called HMRC about this for a client in the same situation. They confirmed that they knew that she had something in the foreign country but did not know if it was income bearing. We just ticked option 2 and sent a covering letter.
Watched my beloved DCFC not get promoted :(
Ahh, Frank Holiday Monday!
General Elections are to vote for who is to be in charge for the next Parliament.
The EU referendum was to vote to leave or remain. We voted leave. In your eyes, we should just rerun this vote evermore regardless of the outcome. How is that democracy and not madness?!
The clients papers belong to the client but your tax file is your tax file. I have never sent a tax file to a client.
