After a long drawn out battle with HMRC claiming we were over payed by 3.5k, we discovered that we have lost our appeal and would have to pay in full or the "debt" would be handed over, we have just had a letter from Advantis who are demanding the money.

 

I refuse on principle to pay the money as we done nothing wrong and declared everything we earned however it seems HMRC are both Judge and Jury and we really do not know where to go from here, any advice would be most welcome.

 

Thanks in advance

moved to the HMRC forum

 

read the threads here

 

never pay a dca on an HMRC bill

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi,

 

Not sure if this thread is on the right forum lol, I will keep it brief:

 

My partner and I moved back to the uk from Spain 2010,

 

my partner a year before me,

 

she started claiming child tax credits and has always been honest about our circumstances,

 

when I returned she informed HMRC about the change both verbally and by mail,

 

in 2012 they informed us we had been overpaid and

 

we obviously disputed this,

we appealed twice and

 

were informed we had lost (surprise) and

we had to pay,

 

I refuse out of principle because we have always declared our earnings etc,

 

we have now had a letter off advantis demanding payment.

 

I just need some advice on what to do next..

Do have copies of the letter (s) informing HMRC of the changes?

 

 

I would suggest a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1980 ( template in the CAG library) this requires HMRC to provide all the data regarding the claimant of the Tax Credit and hopefully the letter (s) sent in notification.

phone or better write to HMRC directly.

 

you don't have to deal with advantis

 

they are a DCA

 

they are NO BAILIFFS

and have

NO SUCH LEGAL POWERS.

Unfortunately as all this happened back in 2010 I do not have copies of the letters we sent them, (they claim never to have received them) I am now going to request an SAR from the HMRC and tell Advantis to swivel

 

Thanks for the advice

Ok apart from generalised personal data please ensure you request the important documents specifically I've known crucial letters to be "forgotten" until the department is pushed for them.

No fee payable to the HMRC.
