I am new to all this but i am in total panic!
Yesterday i received a letter from HMRC -asking if i would be available for an interview telephone call to dicuss payments between April 2020 - March 2021
Of course the first thing i do is go over all my payments and letters - it was such a mess of a year - my kids where in and out of school so i didn't really think to update anything!
Basically when I renewed in May/June 2020 i put in £165 and it should of been the average which was £142 (My Mistake) - Now i am ready to drop! I didn't even look at it.
What is going to happen here? I am so scared.
Also both myself & the childminder agreed on a "retainer fee" to keep my space (So we agreed i would give here what HMRC give me). So this was done from April 2020 - JULY 2020 - then it was all back to full time work from then on.
Has anyone else had these interviews and what was the outcome?
I don't mind paying back what a stupidly owe but Im so scared they will think it was fraud on my behalf.
Please can someone advise or help me, the interview is on 16th and i don't know if i can handle all this until then.
Thanks so much in advance!
