Urgh - that's even worse!
Don't blame me when I accidentally run over your foot!

Personally, I couldn't care less - providing the ladies don't wear those spangly flip flops that they purport to be shoes.

"For many, this will increase the capital gains tax liability arising on the sale of a previously let property by £40,000."
Increase the gain, surely?

Rebecca - is there any update on this? Did this case ever go to FTT?

Now that the income tax allowances/rates/bands have been made more and more complicated, I have to ask what on earth has the Office of Tax Simplification been doing all this time.....?

Won't this be a problem if prior years' Returns have been completed by another agent through third party software, as we won't be able to view the online tax calc.....?
What are we meant to do then.......? Re-input the Return into our own software......?

.....refused to accept them because HMRC sent them to us and had our address on the covering letter - even though each SA302 clearly showed the taxpayer name and UTR.

I had my first spell when I was a bachelor at the turn of the century - lost weight, insomnia, stress, all of that - brought on by a failed relationship amongst other things. Took a good 18 months to come through but when I did I felt so much happier that I was before the original slide. I think it's a case of learning to look at life in a different way.
I kept on top of this until recently when my wife was diagnosed with severe depression (originally post-natal, but developed into "the works" as I would refer to it). She's coming through it now thankfully, but I must admit that with the added pressure on me in recent months to hold the household together (now have two young children), I now feel it all coming back (my wife is aware of it).
What's striking for me is that before, when I lived on my own, I could hide away, let it happen, and deal with it in my own way and in my own time. This time, I have to pretend for the sake of the children. I am a very private person, and because of the work "gossips", keep it hidden from all but those close to me - so I'm now labelled to all as "grumpy". But that gives me an excuse to develop an alternate "persona" if you like, a la Victor Meldrew, in which I can deal with some of my low points in an almost comedy fashion. That's my therapy - though nobody knows that's why I do it.
It's interesting - we all want people to think that we are resilient, and can cope with anything that life throws at us, but simultaneously hate it when those same people don't realise that actually, inside, we're falling apart.

Wrong address given?
All of the P11D(b)s that we have seen need to be returned to Chillingham House, rather than Tynemouth House.

What about the link to Self-Assessment?
I've had a couple of cases where the NPS has not been linked to the corresponding case on the SA system - resulting in repayments of PAYE (assuming full PA available when the income has been taxed at BR) with no reference whatsoever to any non-PAYE income.
(I have in each case advised the client to pay it back!)
