I am having this problem with KJK Investments/G Loans.

 

My situation is very similar.

I have been trying, so far without success, to appeal a hefty tax penalty over a pension-backed loan I took out (perhaps naively but in good faith).

 

With these companies now in liquidation and virtually no hope of recovering the rest of my pension, I could face bankruptcy.

 

Would be very keen to get in touch with others who have been victims of this firm.

No, I wasn't part of that. However, when I did some online research I found a report of a tribunal appeal last March that failed. Not looking good.

Ok thanks, I haven't had any correspondence regarding the appeal as yet, I did however have a good talk to FCA, and they say we might have a case against the sip provider Guardian Pension Consultants for lack of due diligence.

Where do Guardian Pension Consultants fit into it? I don't remember having any dealings with them - it was just G Loans and KJK Investments.

Yes, it was organised through G Loans as a pension-backed loans. I must check the paperwork to see if Guardian Pension Consultants were involved - the name doesn't sound familiar.

ok they did use other sip suppliers. You would of had to get a sip then you would of told them that you wanted the pension invested in KKJ Investments.

 

Have you had any correspondence from Aaron & Partners Solicitors regarding the liquidation of KJK and G-loans.

When did HMRC first make contact with you about the tax

They first wrote to me in 2012 and it's been an ongoing battle since then. At the moment I'm making a final attempt to appeal the whacking great tax penalty they imposed (which I have no way of paying). Have you been in contact with any other victims of these two firms?

Thank you for that, filrobbo. :)

 

I've cut down the article above to around 10% of the original, in line with CAG policy, and left a link so that anyone who wants to read more can click on that.

O thank you, in my case I loan from G-Loans was take out in tax year 2009-2010, first contact made by tax was 2012, as far as I was concerned my tax was up-to-date and didn't know KJK and G-Loans were connected, I was only working P/T so I didn't even pay tax.

Thanks - that's very helpful.

 

 

I'll have to do a bit more research as I don't know exactly how that would affect me.

 

 

My G Loan was taken out in July 2011 and HMRC contacted me in 2012

(I presume you also got the letters from G Loans at around that time, including a barrister's opinion saying the loan was perfectly OK?)

 

 

However, it was only a couple of months ago that HMRC told me the amount of tax I have to pay as a result of the loan.

am also in the same situation and facing bankruptcy.

 

The situation is incredulous as Guardian are now chasing me for annual SIPP fees which I cant pay and they are threatening legal action, they will not accept any responsibility for the situation

 

will be interested to hear more about the process of reporting them to the FCA for not completing due diligence.

 

have correspondence and copies of accounts which were monthly management accounts which I requested from KJK as I was getting nervous about their financial situation for the 6 months before they were wound up.

 

They are clearly completely fabricated and may help in any case against them.

 

you may also be surprised to learn that Greg Garratt from G loans has set up another Financial Services company,

 

s much for regulations!

I also had a letter from them for fees,

I asked them for a break down of the fees,

 

I asked for a copy of the agreement which said I had to pay these fees,

I haven't had a reply,

 

I also stated that their lack of due diligence had a part to play.

 

How much tax are you having to pay mine is about £19k

 

Donmac4 have you been or are you on going with an appeal.

I may ask the for the same information.

I know Guardian are being investigated at the moment by the FCA

I am sure they will be keen to hear that they are chasing fees.

 

My bill is about £34k

I was also told that there would be no tax liability,

there is no way I can pay as the loan was used to pay off debts so bankruptcy is the only option.

 

I am going to approach a firm of solicitors to see how we may be able to take further action

I will let you know how I get on.

 

Also considering going to the press in view of the fact that the directors of the companies seem to be living it up on our cash
