    • Thank you for the letters.   The second one shows you should have been in court two days ago and that they said they could decide the case in your absence if you weren't there.   Please wait for dx to comment but I think you need to wait for the letter from the court now. Do they have the right address for you?   HB
    • Got it, hsbc were aware, I told them and surely they could see the direct debits that had been going out of the account previously and that were now blocked.    10 months is indeed usual. I've never heard of it happen to anyone before but my gut feeling is that the lockdown had something to do with it.    I will write to the CEO and see what he/she has to say but to get a large amount which is at least equivalent to all them defaults should I go to the court or the ombudsman ?. The ombudsman has a long wait of over 5 months at the moment. I could go directly to court and as I'm on Universal Credit I'm exempt from any fees. 
    • you need to prove HSBC were fully aware, in detail, of the very serious nature of your predicament. i'll be honest and say as it stands , unless their account/comms log via an sar has notes or they have the phone call details, you don't appear to have been too bothered this was going on...from the evidence available.  a court would take the same view i think sadly.   you appear to have been more than happy to await some outcome where you believed they'd wave a magic wand and make it all correct again.   a letter from them to each establishment detailing their (HSBC) error and wanting defaults removed and the car returned and payments made upto date etc etc would be a good result, but i cant see that happening.   a 10 month delay is very unusual, we normally see these issues resolved within 6 weeks by most banks. i think the sar is going to be the key here.   but that doesn't stop you from WRITING now to the CEO and complaining, carefully but briefly detailing, by simple bullets points how their 10month investigation concluding it was their error has ruined your life and what are they going to do about it.

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
