Hi all

If you have paid Bailiff's for ANY REASON WHATSOEVER for any Bill whether Council tax, parking etc etc - please ensure that if VAT was added don't forget that this is CURRENTLY 15% and NOT 17.5%

 

I would almost wager a million dollars to a bucket of Horse s--te that a lot of Bills have been charged with 17.5% VAT instead of 15%.

 

People who usually pay the bailiff's are often too distressed etc to look for small details like this but overcharging TAX itself is a Fraudalent exercise and you should be able to do something about this.

 

Don't put up with the B/S that the order was issued before the VAT went down -- the VAT if it's chargeable at all can only be charged on the actual date of "Your Invoice".

 

Any lawyers here -- can we throw some FRAUD offences here for illegal Tax collection.

 

Note VAT rises again on 1 Jan 2010.

 

(Best of all for Council tax - don't pay Bailiff's - pay the council instead - eventually even if they refuse at first they have to take the Bill back so long as you haven't let the bailiff's in or arranged to pay them anything).

 

Cheers

We have come across SO MANY similar cases and letters have been written to many bailiff companies to complain.

 

Once a complaint is made they do apply a refund..but what happens to people who have NEVER complained !!!

Hi there

every piece of help should be posted -- even on this excellent Forum people aren't always aware of all the sneaky tricks these companies get up to.

On the subject of V.A.T,

 

Found this on a Milton Keynes council bailiff report

 

5 DETAILED FINDINGS

 

Performance Monitoring

 

5.2 The largest user of bailiff companies is the R&B service where two bailiff firms are used. In 2008/09 they recovered approximately £2.3M in unpaid taxes from a total overdue debt of £6.2M for which the debtors also incurred £453K in bailiffs’ fees. These fees are retained by bailiff firms however; the Council is subsequently invoiced for these fees and pays the appropriate VAT element. This is standard operating practice with local authorities nationwide..........

 

Does anyone know what the VAT element is, i.e. what percentage? It appears that the council tax payer is funding the Government more than meets the eye with the bailiff sc*m.
