    • Here is the letter I would be sending to the garage;   Dear Sir/ Madam Ref: xxxxxx On xxxxxx I purchased, and took delivery of, the above vehicle Ford Kuga from you. On xxxxx I discovered that it was not of satisfactory quality: the transmission will need to be replaced. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 requires dealers to supply goods that are fit for purpose, as described and of satisfactory quality. However, the vehicle is clearly not roadworthy. You are therefore in breach of contract.  I am legally entitled to ask that your repair or replace this vehicle at no further cost to me. If you are unable to do so, I expect to be reimbursed the original purchase price of £xxxx, minus an agreed amount for fair usage. If you fail to reimburse me, I shall have no alternative but to issue a claim against you in the county court for recovery of the money without further reference to you. Yours faithfully,

    • Hi all im looking for advice when it comes to council tax liability for a new home if an eviction is started for our old home but then suspended due to court error and pandemic causes further delay in proceedings.   The short story is i'm a disabled carer getting legacy ESA and carers allowance who has lived in his own home for nearly 20 years with mortgage as leaseholder. (SMI loan helps with mortgage interest). Also terrified of the UC migration that a change of circumstance will cause so dragging my feet tbh.   Just before the Pandemic the freeholder of our "old home" obtained a dubious possession order and we received notice of eviction before the pandemic so signed a tenancy for a "new home" that we where grateful to be accepted for in a new local authority district. As a result we stopped paying the bit of mortgage interest we needed to pay in our old home in favour of paying the rent for the new home out of our own pocket but before we could move into the new home proper and tell the DWP about a change of circumstance to get the rent paid (natural migration to UC?) the pandemic locked us in our old home!   Now we still haven't moved because the possession order was set aside when the courts re opend post first lockdown because of court error but possession proceedings are still ongoing with the added bonus the mortgage company is now involved and there legal fee's alone have been added to our mortgage balance effectively consuming all equity that was left in the property, thus our long term plan to sell, settle debts and move into rental is destroyed.    The new home awaits us and we spend a couple of days a week there, we have been able to put cheapest carpets in and blinds and moved some stuff in. We pay the rent out of our small income for security to avoid homelessness but we cant abandon the old home yet because thats likely a bankruptcy for certain if we just hand it to the mortgage company..   Believe it or not this is still a council tax question because the council where the new home is want there council tax and have demanded hundreds but obv we cant claim CTR yet as we havent formally had a change of circumstance due to the delay in eviction and im not sure they will like whay i have to tell them.    So the primary question is will the council be able or even willing to reduce or cancel the liability for the new home under these circumstances until we actually get evicted formally from the old home?   I think when you have title to a property you cant claim help with rent on another property and rightly so even in times like this...   We also worried about losing the new flat because being housing association we supposed to live there as our main home but have been delayed moving as described, its pretty certain we are getting evicted in the new year one way or another then insolvency might follow that depending how it occures we are just trying to find a path to avoid insolvency, benefit fraud and homelessness and deal with the council tax in the new home to! Not a small task during a pandemic! Its a tricky customer this any help welcome...

Hi all,

 

I checked my PAYE Tax in May and it was around £300. In June it had shot up to over £400. Is this due to the UK budget coming into effect or is something unusual here?

 

I've been advised to investigate with HMRC but knowing how long they take to do anything I thought I'd ask here first :)

 

Thanks

Hello there.

 

I assume you were paid the same gross amount in both May and June? Is your tax code the same on both payslips, or are there other deductions that are different?

 

Before asking HMRC, I would also talk to your payroll people. They're usually pretty good at understanding payslip printouts.

 

My best, HB

Thanks for the reply.

 

Yes, the gross is identical. The NI is also identical, it's just the PAYE that's different. I've spoken to our payroll and they say that their Sage software just updates automatically so any tax changes are done without their intervention.

 

Does that help?

 

Thanks

Hello again.

 

Tax isn't my speciality I'm afraid, I just know the basics.

 

I'm as confused as you now, and know nothing about Sage. I'm surprised your payroll people don't know what might have happened. Is anyone else affected by this where you work?

 

I would ask payroll again, but if they can't answer, you may need to ring the HMRC, sorry.

What is the tax code, and are you earning more in those 2 months than on average earlier in the year (or any periods of unemployment earlier in the year?)

 

If your code for both months is e.g. 747LX .... should be the same tax for the same basic, unless something has changed taxable pay to non-taxable or vice versa (such as different pension payments or buying something on a 'salary sacrifice' scheme)

 

If the code for both months is e.g. 747L. (no 'X' suffix) : same as above (any changes?) but also:

Did you have any accrued allowance from previous months that meant you paid less tax in May, but then were used up so weren't available as accrued allowance rather than "just that month's allowance" in June?

Normally a tax code is cumulative, which means there is a rolling total of the tax month on month.

If there is an x or W1/M1 after the code, this means the code is being operated on a week 1/month 1 basis which means tax is deducted as if itvwere the first week or month of the year(no account is taken of the previous tax deducted) this is usually done if an overpayment is being collected from a previous tax year or a deduction for job related benefits is included in the code such as car benefit.

Would you be able to scan a copy of the payslip ( redact NiNo and other personal details first) so I can check it and hopefully advise you further
