  1. Hi, thanks for all replies. Have telephoned the number on the letter from HMRC and told them we have someone else's tax return and enough details on them to steal their identity if we were dishonest. They didn't seem bothered in the least, told my husband that they looked it up and it wasn't in their system (whatever that means). He asked them that didn't they think it was a serious breach of data protection but it didn't seem to occur to them. They have asked him to send it back which I will do tomorrow along with a letter of complaint from us. He also telephoned the unfortunate person who details we have, he felt they have a right to know, and it turns out it is a vulnerable person with a Power of Attorney, the PofA was not best pleased but thanked us for letting them know. We have kept the details of our tax return so can get that back now.
  2. Thanks for reply. Yes we will still try and get our reply to them although it would have helped to send us the correct scanned tax return!
  3. I sent in a Self Assessment for Self Employment by the 31 October 2019 deadline and the Inland Revenue has written back to me asking for some more information on the supplementary evidence page. They say they have sent with this a scanned image of my tax return but they have sent me someone else's SA102 form. This has their name, address NINO, full bank account details and all their income information. My worry is where has my information been sent to? This is surely a breach of data protection. Any advice please on what I should do? They say they are going to fine me £100 if I don't get my reply back by 23 December 2019.
  4. Thanks for quick reply, I didn't know that. Do you think I should ring them?
  5. I have received a Debt Recovery Letter from EOS but I have no idea what or for whom the debt is for. There is no clue on the letter although it says they have previously sent a Notice of Assignment which I haven't received. The question is do I contact them for information as I can't remember anything about this. If I do owe it and it goes back to pre-2013 it might be statute barred and my opening communication with them could re-open a can of worms. Any advice please. Thanks.
  6. No OK you're right. My colleagues and I will have to bring our concerns up with the boss. It was a general enquiry about being double funded.
  7. Defensive and narkey, didn't answer the question and said other members of staff were doing 2 projects but I don't know anyone who is.
  8. No the 33 hours actually had my name on the bid. Agree its dodgy to whistleblow but it doesn't sit well.
  9. Hi, thanks for reply. I am normally fully occupied as have 50 clients on project when at full capacity. Found details of the original bid and we are bound to work 33 hours a week. I will need more than 4 hours to carry out duties on the new project and I'm sure they won't have bid for us to work 4 hours per week on a full on Skills Training programme. We don't even get sick pay so it is perturbing us that our time has been funded probably twice.
  10. I work on a Welfare to Work project funded by Community Fund and some ESF and earn £25K. My Company is a registered Charity. I have now been asked to take on a Skills Training project (also funded by ESF) running alongside my original project. My question is this - as I understand it the salaries for staff are included in the bids presumably for full time workers. Can then the company ask a worker to work on 2 projects, are they not raking in 2 salaries for each worker who then has to work part time on each project? It is something running through I and my colleagues minds and although we weren't expecting 2 salaries this is going to spread us thin. Would anyone have any insight as to how this works? Many thanks for any input.
  11. Not very good news! The employer just told him he may as well go as he wasn't going to re-new the lease on the building. Didn't even tell the truth about what was happening.
  12. Sorry, re-read this and I see the company is supposed to let former employees know if they are owed money. Still not sure what to do if he doesn't hear anything from them as there has been no communication since it happened and they sent him home out of the blue. Can anyone help with advice about his next step? Thank you.
  13. Thanks for that. The information says about advising employees but stepson has been let go. They told him they were not renewing the lease but did not pay him monies he is due. Should he take some legal advice?
  14. Companies House says 'Active proposal to strike off' which we don't know what it exactly means. Can anyone help please?
  15. Thanks for replies. We'll check the state of the company.
  16. My stepson worked for a garage for over 2 years and around February 2019 they seemed to have gone bankrupt sending him home but still owing him at least 2 weeks wages and holiday pay, around £1,000. He has been round to the owner's house but no-one was there. He has found another job but has 2 small young children and wasn't able to pay his rent due to not being paid. Companies house says the company is due to be dissolved at at 16.4.19. What should be his next move. Appreciate any advice. Thank you.
  17. Hi, I wonder if you can now give me further advice on this. The car went back to the garage as I said, I have just been on holiday last week and yesterday returned to England to a text message that it needed a whole new gearbox and they want me to contribute £200 towards this. I know I am out of the 30 days now. It would push the price of the car to £2,315 which I feel is now a lot for a 2003 car and you here advised me that I should expect repairs for free. Please, what are my rights now and whaqt would your advice be? Thank you.
  18. Please try and explain your story as fully as possible but in a chronological order. It will make it easier for people to understand what help you need. Please space and punctuate your story clearly. It is difficult to read an unbroken block of text. I bought a 2003 Automatic VW Beetle from an independent garage on 3 March 2019 which seemed to drive fine on the road test. It had a new MOT and been serviced. It cost £2,145 which I felt was more than the book price but it has been difficult to get a car like this. On driving it back home after about 15 miles I noticed there was something wrong with the automatic gear change, then a engine fault light came on and the exhaust seemed to be blown. I had a diagnostic done on this and it brought up faults. I let the garage know and they disbelieved me but have picked it up and taken it to repair. The gear box was loose and had to be tightened. They are now saying that it needs a new catalytic converter as emissions are too high and they want me to pay for this. My question, please, is it reasonable that I pay for this? Feel I should have got an up together car for my money. Advice please. Thank you.
  19. Thanks for replies. At least we know it is legal. They have given him a disciplinary because of too many doctors appointments but he didn't get dismissed.
