Surely if a P800 is merely an administrative process it is not enforceable, and so any change of tax code to collect tax showing to be owed on a P800 represents unlawful deductions from pay.
I should think HMRC do cancel penalties for failing to do something that the liable party may not be aware is even an issue.
Many couples live financially independent lives. If a higher earner fails to declare child benefit that they did not know their partner was claiming, then penalising them for the failure is grossly unjust.
Honestly, I couldn't give a monkey's about what they did in their youth. A great many people in this country have experimented with drugs at some point in their lives (I always found beer to be more than satisfactory) without it affecting their later careers.
More worrying is that any of them may be the next PM, since not a single solitary one seems to have the first clue.
As for BoJo's plan to raise the BR threshold to £80k, as a colleague pointed out, is it any coincidence that an MP's salary is, currently, just shy of £80k?
Nah - it was an abbreviation for the name of the company where I work (until it changed a couple of years ago - but by then I was stuck with the name).
To be the dissenting voice, I'm unqualified. I worked for HMRC for 20 years, and have worked in private practice (mostly regulated practices) for 18 years. I've seen soem horrendous stuff from qualifieds, and have had to correct advice given by qualifieds.
I follow PCRT with a passion, and maintain my CPD.
Who has the right to determine that being a member of a PB that cares more about the subs than the members would make me any better.
And note that it's usually qualified practitioners coming up with questionable schemes to avoid tax.
This is typical HMRC behaviour.
1st. Introduce a new system.
2nd. Implement punitive penalties for failing to comply.
3rd. Remove access to information vital for compliance.
Result - penalty revenue increases.
It is, very much like Government itself, not fit for purpose.
So presumably, using your login, software developers were wholly culpable when some calculations were wrong because of the infamous Intel bug?
That happened to me. Did we go to the same school?
Quote:The profession is crying out for staff. So if you’re in a job that you absolutely hate, it should be easy enough to swallow your pride, leave and find something much better. As an added incentive, there is a strong possibility that you will get a pay rise as part of the new package.
I really hope so. Not because of stress, but I may have other reasons to be looking elsewhere before the year is out.
Hardly a surprise that the department doing it's best to discourage all direct contact doesn't have an email address for its complaints authority.
Take a look at HMRC's home page, and then without using search, find contact details or a link to contact details.
Unlike any reputable organisation.
