  1. No. Unfortunately she thought that once she became employed it would automatically be picked up that she was paying tax through the PAYE system.
  2. Hi Hoping someone can give some advice please. My daughter was doing some freelance work when she lived at home and never earned enough to pay tax and I helped her file her tax returns. She left home and got married in 2014. She did her last freelance work in Dec 2014 and then became employed in a different line of work. Her self employed income was all paid by March 2015. Although she remembered last year to fill in her 2013/14 tax return, because she is now employed and pays tax through PAYE she never thought about completing a tax return for 2014/15. She has received a letter from HMRC saying her return is late and she will be charged £100, which she accepts. I have checked her earnings for 2014/15 and this is the first time she would have earned enough to be liable for tax. She has just found out she is pregnant and so faces a tax bill to pay but also a hefty cut in her income as her hubby is on a low wage and she will be off work for a while when she has had the baby. I have been reading that self employed tax is paid in a lump, which she can't afford to do. As she is now employed can the underpaid tax be paid through the PAYE system? Can she ask for payments to be spread over 3 years as you can for tax underpaid through PAYE? Would be really grateful for any info as she is worrying herself sick and has already had two spells in hospital as she has been so ill since being pregnant.
  3. Just wondered if anyone had any info or links which I could use. My husband owes approx £2200 from previous years PAYE from when he worked from a previous employer (who has now gone bust) and they hadn't informed the tax office of these. Hubby recently had a letter from HMRC saying that they were altering the coding from April 2012 which would mean that he will be paying an extra approx £200 per month to repay the underpaid amount. That wouldn't have been a problem, except that in November he had a routine op which the surgeon botched leaving him with nerve damage and being unable to work at present. At present he is only being paid £81.60 per week SSP. I only work part time and get £101 per week. We get £8.29 per week tax credits (although we have been told that in April we can reapply due to our current circumstances.) We also get £134 per month child benefit. We have 2 dependant children. Obviously with hubby only getting £81.60 per week we can't afford the extra £200 tax at the moment. Does anyone know where there are any links to template letters which we could send to appeal to HMRC on the grounds of hardship to delay repayment, or even write off the amount? Or does anyone know where we can get help. Time is of the essence as we need to sort this asap before the tax year starts. Thanking you in advance of your help.
  4. Hi I have been working for the last 8 years for a national supermarket chain - always had fantastic annual reviews and have had excellent work reputation. I work 2 nights a week. I originally worked nights when my 3 children were younger so that I could tailor my work hours around them. We have recently moved house and my youngest still needs me to take him to and from school so I am limited as to the hours I can work - I don't have any family around who can help me with childcare. Over the last few months my absence rate has been over the trigger level of 3% - my young son has been very ill, we have had some personal problems and I am genuinely finding that with all that I have on my plate I'm struggling with my hours working at night (10pm-7am). Our personal situation has come to a head over the last 3-4 weeks and my doctor signed me off for 2 weeks with stress - I was working my nights, and then because of the stress we are under came home and couldn't sleep (one week I slept about 2 hours in 50 over the 2 days I was working) because my mind just wouldn't stop racing and I can't eat properly because of the worry of our situation either. I just got to the point of collapse, crying all the time and feeling that I just can't cope. I asked the doctor for something to help me sleep which she wouldn't give but signed me off instead. I am still signed off this week and would like some advice on how to proceed when I go back to work. I will have a return to work interview and I don't really want to go too deeply into our personal circumstances that have caused me to collapse in a heap - do I have to tell my manager chapter and verse of what has happened? Also because of our financial situation, I can't afford to give up work completely, how could I proceed to ask them about the possibility of transferring onto days or as the nights (along with my circumstances) are affecting my health, how I could alter my hours to a more sociable time that I could cope with better? Any ideas/help would be so much appreciated.
  5. Hi Can someone please advise? My husband started work with employer Nov 2006 but initially didn't take up the personal use of company car. After our car was written off in an accident he wrote to his employer asking that they arrange to make the appropriate tax deductions for personal use of the company car. He has just been informed by his employer that no deductions for the company car benefit in kind have been made by them - he has never received a P11D. At least 3 other people within the company have been told that HMRC doesn't have the correct car details for them and so they have hastily been contacting their tax office to correct. They are trying to suggest that its my husbands fault, however from info I have found it seems like the company hasn't been filling in the correct forms/returns to the tax office. As soon as we found out about this my hubby contacted his employer 4 times to ask them for the details that he would need to give the tax office and each time the company has been obstructive and just told him that he needs to sort it out with hmrc. We have ended up having to contact the leasing company direct to get the details and work out the P11D amounts ourselves on the HMRC website. Does anyone have any advice on how to sort this out? I also feel that the company are trying to say that this is misconduct on his part and using it as an excuse to discipline him or get rid of him. Any help out there would be really appreciated.

  7. Thanks. He did ask the police if they could put it in writing, but because the speeding offence still isn't in his name they said they couldn't. However, he does have a note of the persons name he spoke to and has copies of everything he has been sent/given and also we have today sat and compiled a diary of what has been said/done and when. Wondering whether a good investment to pay for the Which legal Help? Any recommendations?
  8. Sorry this is a long post but hoping that someone could advise. My husband is a company car driver and in July was snapped on camera. As a leased car the leasing company filled in the Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) naming his company as the keeper. The police then sent an NIP to his employer asking for the form to be filled in with the name of the driver and specifically says do not hand to the driver. This form was given to my husband - being the dutiful employee he took the form but he thought it was outside of the 14 day rule and so sent it to the police with a covering letter asking for it to be wiped. The police sent a letter back to his employer stating that it had been correctly sent, that they couldn't deal with my husband as the matter wasn't yet in his name and asking for them to fill in the NIP. This was again given to my husband who dutifully filled it in and sent it to the police. He heard nothing until some time later his manager asked him whether he had sent it back as the police had contacted the company to say they hadn't received it. He told his Manager that he had sent it back and his manager said that he would tell the company secretary. Nothing heard again until a couple of weeks ago he was given a 'letter of concern' detailing the events that had occured. My husband had to ask for this to be amended twice as it contained 'assumptions' and incorrect details. The letter also said that the company had received a summons to court that could not now be revoked, that he would be fully investigated in line with company policy and that disciplinary proceedings may now be considered regardless of what happened at court. My hubby asked on what grounds a disciplinary hearing would be made and he was told 'off the record' it would be for brining the company into disrepute. On the same day he had a letter sent by the MD stating the same thing that a court summons had been received by the company because my hubby had failed to fill in the NIP and that the court summons couldn't be revoked. He also said that he was disappointed in hubby and that the situation could have been avoided if he had been sincere and diligent. Hubby sent an email to the MD asking if he could contact the police directly, his MD said they would have a chat but he has received no contact from him at all and so has taken advice this week. Following advice he was given hubby phoned the police about the matter. The police said that there has been no court summons sent but simply his employer has been sent notice that a date has been set for them to go to court should his employer fail to make any further contact with the police. The lady at the police actually said that she couldn't understand why they would want it to go to court. He was told that all that needed to happen was for his employer to fill in the copy of the NIP he kept (thank goodnesss he kept copies of everything) which would then put the speeding offence in his name and he could pay the fine and take the points. She reiterated that he was not able to fill in the form himself this had to be done by the employer. It appears that the employer is trying to force the matter to court so that they have 'grounds' to fire him. The letters he has received contain outright lies and the situation is becoming very unpleasant. He has sent a letter to both the MD and his Manager asking why they have put in writing that a court summons has been issued and that it cannot now be revoked, and also on what basis they would be taking disciplinary action. We are sure that the situation has now become so unpleasant that they will ask him to resign - can any one advise on his situation, what we do now, what to do when his MD or manager haul him in the office and say that due to the situation he isn't welcome to work there anymore? Any advice would be really appreciated!
