Hi everyone

 

Got a letter from Advantis yesterday telling me that I owe HMRC £688.09.

 

Well this was news to me as HMRC have never been in touch.

What is the best way to deal with this people?

 

I have however been chased by HMRC for the last 10 months wherein they were chasing me for a debt of £1300 because I had failed to submit a self assessment form.

 

Having never been self employed I had no reason to submit one.

The HMRC refused to accept all evidence of P60s and wage slips from my employer.

 

They did however send me a self assessment statement on the 7th January, received 18th January! cancelled all the alleged debts.

 

And lo and behold now I get a lovely letter from some numpty debt collectors for a totally different amount.

 

I'm just going to put together a "prove it" letter so any help would be most gratefully received.

 

Thank you

I have now received a letter from Advantis asking if the account is in dispute, I put that in capital letters on my letter to them. If so they need documentary evidence to give to their clients.

 

I did ask them for a full breakdown, accounts and statements and proof of what this amount was for. They have just said its for tax credits going back 4 years and have not provided me with the information I have asked them for.

 

What time period do I need to give them to provide this information? I don't believe its up to me to provide documentary accounts.

 

They have put the account on hold for 14 days but it has taken 8 days for the letter to reach me.

 

Any help and advise is once again gratefully received...thanks

IGNORE them.

 

Deal with HMRC direct.

the debt collectore dont need anything as they have no interest in the matter. Just the foff letter will suffice and then you can complain about them if they do not cease their activites

Hi

 

 

Advantis have failed to provide any info that I asked for.

 

 

They are now telling me to appeal against debt direct to HMRC within 7 days

and for me to tell them which office I have sent it to.

 

 

As I have had no correspondence at all with HMRC about this alleged debt

would be difficult to know where to appeal to!

 

 

Advantis have said failure to tell them will result in their collections dep continue to contact (harass!) me!!

There is plenty of contact information for HMRC on the web, you just have to use google to find it.

 

Then write to the address that you find that deals with your particular issue.

 

You don't owe Advantis anything so you're wasting your time even thinking about them and simply encouraging them if you have been contacting them.

 

Ringing them is futile, they will rob you blind and you'll happily let them.

 

Deal ONLY with HMRC. Deal ONLY with HMRC. Deal ONLY with HMRC. Deal ONLY with HMRC. Deal ONLY with HMRC.
