    Zazzle.co.uk TAX

    I have an account with Zazzle.co.uk (but i think US company) and upload designs which are placed on products that people can buy. Once sold, I get a royalty on the product, eg 10% from a £20 tshirt. I am want to withdraw funds but I need to complete a form that mentions a tax treaty between the US and UK. I can choose to not complete this section BUT will lose 30% for tax. Or I can claim of Tax Treaty Benefits, but the info from them is vague. I've attached the form that I need to complete (I think?). Does anyone know where I can find more info about this tax treaty?? Any help appreciated. fw8benZAZZLE.pdf
  2. so they have to submit to me a letter before action too??
  3. If I send a letter before action, can the person I am claiming against then submit their own claim to court against me??
  4. The landlords (a company) and I are butting heads about both these issues. Claim damage to furniture: I have had to destroy 3 pieces of furniture due to mould. The mould I believe was caused due to a poor sealing window in our bedroom therefore letting in moisture. The landlords knew about this within a couple of months of moving in and never corrected it. I tried every year before winter to add my own seal but that ultimately fails. And heating the room was so expensive, as I believe there was no wall insulation as there were black spots of mould on 3 out of 4 walls and the noise from other neighbours was unbearable. I have receipts of the furniture and pictures of the mould but this isn't enough for them. Early leaving fee: Yes I know there is an agreement in place in which I must give a month's notice in writing. The fixed agreement had ended and I think I am right in saying I was on a periodic agreement. However, our neighbour was burgled (the building has 5 flats). We have had trouble with this neighbour before and felt unsafe anyway, but this was a tipping point. We so then started to view flats and found one which began the process of registering and references. We asked our landlords for a reference and said some of the following in an email "Due to the recent burglary we feel the time is right to move to another property.....". They did actually phone and mentioned they were surprised that we are leaving them after such a long time. I know this does not constitute a formal acknowledgement that we are leaving, but it wasn't until about 3 and a half weeks after this we moved out. They have then charged an early vacating fee but I am contesting this due to the circumstances of the burglary - they keep saying this is not a valid reason. The burgled tenant also implied I had something to do with this, which the landlords disagreed with. All in all, with some deductions which I do agree with BUT without the early vacating fee, I am asking for a small amount of money back from them. They do not agree. A case was opened with the TDS but based on what I have uploaded as evidence and the damage to furniture, they felt it was best that I not agree to this process and take it to court if I choose to do so. Not sure if I could also add this to a claim, but after a couple of years in that property and with complaints regarding noise etc, both me and my partner are now on anxiety medication - could I not add a claim against them for this? Any advice would be appreciated.
  5. thanks for all your help...i'll try the SAR.
  6. no time limit...dammit. but they did mention in their original letter about a debt collection agency?
  7. cool, thanks i'll get back to them on moday when their lines open again.
  8. they claimed on the phone it was many small social fund loans back in 2008.
  9. now NOT eligible for housing benefit.....it won't let me edit my original post
  10. i have received a letter from the DWP and after phoning found out that it was a social fund crisis loan debt from 2008 for around £700. can they still chase this after so long?? i recently moved and are not now eligible for HB because of our lower rent, so i think for some reason it's now flagged on their system. but the debt is so old and now they have sent a letter to my employer for a DEA. any advice would be great.
  11. If you can find one then please and thank you......
  12. They are simply not even bothering to respond to ANY of my emails. What would be the next step for failure to make contact with me????
  13. If I use this in my next letter/email, will they question it?? If so, is there a specific section that relates to this "case"??
  14. So when I next communicate with them do I mention "Consumer Rights Act 2015" as it's written?? This might be the "push" they need to even respond.
  15. ordered 12th feb (delivered a few days after), first contact 28th march
  16. OK. I bought a laptop from them in Feb this year. It was, at the time, the cheapest laptop and thought it would be fine for what I required it for. However it was not powerful enough. I have requested to return it but under their home approval guarantee, they say I cannot. They keep asking me if it is faulty, but it's not. The specs are not good enough for any kind of internet browsing, let alone anything else. I have ordered from Premier Man a tablet, that after using it for about 4 months, told them Skype did not work, and they took it back and refunded me with no trouble. But Very are really digging their heels in. I would have thought, even outside of their regulations, that distance selling regulations would help me. I sent one formal complaint as a written letter (recorded delivery) to Very, but they never even acknowledged it. I then sent another formal complaint as a written letter (recorded delivery) to their parent company, Shop Direct Limited and again they never acknowledged it. So I then tracked down their boss and emailed him - he responded immediately and the process seemed to move on. However, the rep now handling the complaint (after sending 2 emails) will now not respond and it's all gone cold. Hence my original post.
  17. wow!! thanks for the useful info....i'm glad there are really helpful people on the cag just like you....
  18. Very / Shop Direct Limited (the parent company) Complaints made to Very.co.uk - no good. Complaint made to Shop Direct Limited - after acknowledging complaint and assigned a member of the executive team, will now not respond to my emails. WHAT IS MY NEXT STEP????
  19. 20-30 pounds......please can you let me know where to find a pro trace from please????
  20. if anyone has that kind of time and money then be my guest..... i cannot visit the address i have now - it's an address for the accountants for her business as she is trying to evade bailifs. previous address was home address - but that is now linked to the company now in liquidation. she has "moved" her directorship to this new company which only has accountant address. stuck now.....never mind. open to any comments that are HELPFUL and not obvious and sarcastic.
  21. Yes i have, but maybe i don;t know what i'm doing.... If you wish to have a go.... (removed ) please do not post personal details of the judgment debtor
  22. Lambeth County Court and the bailifs will not enforce the warrant at the address - the only address i have for the defendant is a C/O address via her accountants for her business. And the previous company they are dissolving - it's clearly dodgy and avoiding the bailifs. I'm trying to get her current location, but i cannot find anything. I have 2 mobile numbers and an email address, but since i revealed who i was in email, after pretending i was a potential client, she has no longer responded. Surely there is something i can do???? A judgement was made against the defendant and yet they cannot do anything??? This is rubbish, allowing people to get away with stuff like this. If anyone can shed any form of light on this, no matter how small, i'm ALL EARS. THANK YOU
