  1. Hi there. I hope I’m posting in the correct place. Basically we received a letter from HMRC stating: ‘ the DWP has told us you are getting a disability benefit for your child. This means you may have also been able to get the tax credit disability element for them’. It then gives us a break down of a rather large sum owed to us, and states the one off payment will be paid to my account within 21 days. The week after we received the letter, my partner called them to check what’s happening as we hadn’t received the funds, and if anything to check it the letter was legitimate. They said that as the letter was addressed to my partner, but the account details where mine, it flagged up on their system to contact us to insure this is ok. The Issue was then rectified, details confirmed and we should receive within the next 10 days. well we are now 22 working days from the date of the letter, still no payment. We contact HMRC who said they have referred our case to the payment department to call us... who never do!! Just haven’t a clue what’s going on??!? Anyone else experienced anything like this??
  2. hi there yes this is what I have also heard through googling my query. I have been on my online personal tax account and requested the rebate through an online transfer into my bank account. so it wouldn’t be through my wages. regards
  3. yes that’s how I would understand it to be, but after looking around at other sites for an answer. it appears the answer is not that clear. The rebate has come handy as the cars due a service etc. but I guess to be on the safe side it would be wise to save the rebate, just in case they deduct from my universal credit payment.
  4. hi yes I can confirm it is in deed not a scam, I’m well aware of these phishing emails and have reported a few recently. I have been aware I should of been due a tax rebate as in my previous employment I had a salary sacrifice car. when I left for my current employer October 2019, I gave the car back but my tax code never changed and was still reflecting my code as though I still had the car. So with that in mind I have been regularly checking on my online tax account to check, and it now states I’m due the rebate.
  5. Hi I have just received confirmation that I am due a tax rebate from 2019/2020 of £485. I am currently in receipt of universal credit of approximately £1840 per month, claiming from the beginning of may this year. I currently earn £1600 per month and have two children, one of which is disabled. my question is, will this rebate have an effect on my universal payment? thank you in advance

    Benefit in kind tax

    Hi all basically I left my previous employer on the 18th of October 2019 to which I had a salary sacrifice vehicle. As I resigned to work elsewhere, the contract included a termination fee waver. Therefore they collected the vehicle on the 01st November 2019. My query is though.. I still appear to be paying the benefit in kind tax to this date. now excuse my ignorance, but i don’t know too much about tax and tax codes, is there anything I need to do in regards to contacting HMRC about this? will I receive a rebate of some sort etc etc many thanks in advance
  7. Oh right okay! I suppose it’s rather complicated in my situation, as I’m not actually starting a new job as such, rather it’s a new position in the same company.
  8. Okay gotcha, you have to excuse me, iv never claimed benefits so I haven’t a foggiest about what to claim etc etc.. okay then i shall look into it. In regards to volunteering a lower paid job.. yes that’s kinda what I was concerned about too. Hopefully I’ll be entitled to something, i kinda need all the help I can get lol!!
  9. Ah okay mate, sorry if I sound daft, but do you mean, Ipswich is a uc area as of April gone or April next year? I haven’t yet got a start date as I’m awaiting a course date to be announced, but I have been trying to bank some extra cash ready for the big day. It is worrying though as I know my monthly wages wouldn’t even cover my rent for the 1st 3months!! But will all be worth it in the long run!
  10. Thank you for the reply. Oh okay, we’ll if it’s any help, I live in Ipswich Suffolk.
  11. Hi all. Just a quick query. I’m due to leave a well paid position at my company to begin training in another position in the same company, in order to better myself, the problem is the training wage is very low for the first 11weeks then rise slightly as I progress through the training. My question is, as my previous position was well paid, I wasn’t entitled to tax credits, now I’m due to begin training in approximately March time next year. If and when I declare my new salary to hmrc, will I automatically be entitled to tax credits there and then or will I have to wait until the new tax year in April? My earnings for tax year 2018 to 2019 will be over the entitlement limit by the time we get to March 2019, so I wasn’t sure how it worked. Also do they take into account salary sacrifice benefits that I have taken advantage of at my company? I.e, would I declare my salary minus the salary sacrifice? Thank you very much in advance
  12. Hi, I’m not sure if I’m on the right forum or not but here goes. After a lot of thought, we are considering the possibility of starting a shared mortgage with our next door neighbours whom we are very good friends with, we would be looking for a 6 bedroom house as we have four kids between us. Now my problem is that I haven’t got great credit, past mistakes of being reckless etc, which I’m slowly but surely paying away . I have no ccj’s but do have a number of defaults, the last issued default being approximately 4-5years ago. I have a next account that we regularly use and have been sensible with, which I hope shows that I’m managing my credit better than in the past. My question is though, will I be a liability in a joint mortgage application? Even if the other applicant has good credit? Thanks in advance
  13. Well my defence has been submitted. I had to do it online, as I received the court summons as redirected post from my previous address ( recently moved house ), I had like 1 day to get the forms to court!!! But all done now. I stated what you posted, let's wait and see what the outcome is! Cheers guys!!
  14. So in simple terms ( you'll have to excuse me, I'm not very clued up on these things ). I acknowledge the claim, fill out the form stating I defend the claim. Then go on to say I was not the driver at the time of the supposed offence. Should I also mention that the car park was a free carpal to park in? Just kinda need to know the correct info to state in the defence section. Cheers guys
  15. Hi guys me again!! Well after a recent house move, I have just received some redirected post from my previous address, in which includes a letter from the court with a claim from civil parking enforcement. So what now then guys? Do I fill out the defence? And what would you suggest I state? Bare in mind I wasn't the driver, and the supposed offence was commited a few years ago in a free car park!! Cheers
