  1. That's really helpful - thanks again. I'm not very happy about the employer's stance on whether it is actually IP income (from the purchaser of the rights) or a payment arising from an agreement between me and my employer, but they assert that the latter is their advised position (issue being that royalties from US patents are not subject to UK income tax). If anyone has any opinions or expertise on that, i'd welcome your thoughts! Donation forthcoming!
  2. Thanks Slick. Yes i was an employee - i left there about 10 years ago. So essentially they dock the tax/NI as if i was paying basic rate with the standard personal allowance, and enter it on a P60? Slight issue is that (while it isn't an enormous sum) it MAY push me into the 40pc bracket. From reading around a bit, my understanding is that if an additional taxable sum pushes someone over that threshold the WHOLE of the new sum is charged at 40pc. I don't know if that is just until i do a tax return and they recalculate. The OTHER slight issue is that i assume it will now
  3. Thanks Ethel - some useful pointers there. Appreciate you taking the time to respond.
  4. Hi all Thanks in advance for your collective wisdom. I am due to be paid a sum of money arising from the sale of patent rights by a previous employer to a third party. The previous employer is telling me that they are obliged to deduct income tax and NI as it is classified as being earned income. (I'm disputing that classification, but that's another story!). My question is CAN someone who is not currently your employer (or pension provider) deduct income tax and NI? They don't have my current tax code. I thought it was down to them to pay me the f
  5. Just to clarify, i need to be getting the employer to instruct CPP to cancel rather than "assisting with my appeal"?? Thanks
  6. Thanks EB. I have spoken to Head of Security, who is in charge of the scheme from the University side, and i work closely with. He has told me to bring in two forms of proof that i have paid (i.e. my pay slip, as it is deducted as a salary sacrifice, and a screenshot of the permit i hold for that vehicle), and he will be able to cancel it. Will report back with updates, but i wonder how many suckers have paid the charge when presented with it, given that it is probably not enforceable! Cheers all.
  7. I need to show the permit when i am parked in the non-ANPR car parks, but i don't believe it requires me to display it in this one. But yes, I was - i have copies in both cars. Thanks
  8. Hi all Been a while since i was last here, but i hope someone can advise. My employer, Warwick University, has recently built a new car park which has ANPR control. I pay a monthly fee for a permit to park in it (and any other car park on site). The online staff system allows us to have four vehicles registered on the system, but we have to identify which vehicle we use on any given day. I have fallen foul of this rule by taking my wife's car to work for one day (when i DID change the active vehicle), then switched back to mine and forgot to change the active vehic
  9. CCJs are generally only an issue if they get a default judgment against people who have stuck their heads in the sand and ignored court papers, or by "accidentally" using the wrong address for the defendant. Even if you lose in court (which is unlikely given other cases similar to yours), if you pay what the court tells you to within the required time, you won't get a CCJ nor will it affect your credit rating.
  10. So this clearly shows that you haven't read ANY of the other threads on here, or you would know that ericsbrother et al ALWAYS pick apart the PPCs' attempts to comply with POFA2012, just as in this case. Why do you think you are asked to post up pictures of the signage and the NTK? Answer: They almost ALWAYS fail to comply, and that, in the absence of anything else, could be grounds for your defence. They were lucky they got a judge who understands the law.
  11. Oh, and it's not a "legal loophole" - Excel simply failed to comply with statute law.
  12. "The judge had never come across that defence before"???? Really? At Manchester "Civil" Court (I presume they mean County)? Excel reckon they could have avoided it getting to court if the defendant had engaged with them earlier? That's alright then - all you defendants can write to Excel telling them they are engaging with them to stop it getting to court - drop the claim, please"
  13. Is that an indication of the pressure that all these fraudulent cases are putting on the courts system?
