    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi, My friend recently found that his employer from 2009/2010 hadn't registered him with HMRC PAYE but they have deducted the paye and NI from his salary and gave him payslips. Also the company was dissolved somewhere in 2012/2013 and noway he could contact them.

 

He only found out when he inquired hmrc about his employment history for the past 6 years which he needed for his visa application.

 

How can he update hmrc records with this employment when the employer can not be found? What is the best resolution for him?

 

Thanks.

Has he still got the pay slips from the years in question ?

 

If so, forward copies on to HMRC and let them pursue the matter.

Yes, he still have them. Luckily he saved all the docs used for his Visa application.

 

What are the chances of hmrc updating their records when the company doesn't exist anymore? and he is worried, hmrc would pin this on him and come after him for the unpaid taxes even though the company has deducted from his salary.

 

Sadly he has only payslips and a company letter from the employment. And no p45 or p60.

if he has the pay slips then in no way can anybody get at him, if he shows HMRC the copies then the onus is on them to act against employer (who maybe under investigation anyway) so speak to them and give them copies of the evidence showing deductions!
