    • Hi HB,  I have been using it - freedom pass for a long time, this is why i am worried, my memory fails me!  there is no way of checking on the freedom pass usage according my partner.  see my question on your comments: Paragraph 1 a short explanation of why you used the card on the day you were caught worry: as i said i have no excuse other than to save some money  Paragraph 2 you know you made a mistake and you regret it worry: yes i will admit that it is my fault and apologise profusely - will see other template Paragraph 3 you understand how what you did is wrong and the effect it has on TfL worry: yes will do, borrowing words from other template Paragraph 4 you have taken action - tell them what - to ensure that this doesn't happen again worry: i have an oyster PAYG which i use for my journey in to work -ranging 2-3 days a week;  so i can't say that i will buy a season ticket which is more expensive?? Paragraph 5 you ask if they would allow you to pay the outstanding fare and their administrative costs to resolve this worry: i will do that. QuestIon: will they inform my employer?     
    • So they seem to be deliberately fouling Britain - not 'just negligently Need to be in jail alongside the PO crims, and rabidly corrupt MPs

    • The first thing you need to do is for your father to send Argos customer services an email saying he wishes to return the item within the 14 day cooling-off period under the Consumer Rights Act 2015. This is important because he needs simple proof to back up his request, as they are being stubborn. Enclose a copy of receipt details so they can locate the sale, Distant selling regulations will apply as he made the contract online with the retailer and they took the payment. The contract is between your father and ARGOS. He has to cancel the contract and receive a refund back to his debit card. You cannot act on his behalf as a third party and they have every right to refuse to deal with you if they so wish. Data Protection the number one issue. I don't understand why Privity was mentioned since nobody is suing anyone. How you received the goods is irrelevant. A retailer's terms and conditions cannot derogate statutory obligation.
    • TfL take abuse of staff passes very seriously. If the pass has been confiscated I imagine they will write to them and it could result in the card being suspended for a time, as I understand it. I hope you've told them about the card being confiscated and why? We need to know how many times you used the pass please - how many weeks at 2-3 days a week. Later I would expect TfL to write to you as well, possibly with a schedule of journeys made with the card, to ask you to tell them which journeys were you. They will ask for your side of the story. We can help you to refine a letter to send once they write but you need to start it off because you're the only one who knows the full story. I suggest something like this. Paragraph 1 a short explanation of why you used the card on the day you were caught Paragraph 2 you know you made a mistake and you regret it Paragraph 3 you understand how what you did is wrong and the effect it has on TfL Paragraph 4 you have taken action - tell them what - to ensure that this doesn't happen again Paragraph 5 you ask if they would allow you to pay the outstanding fare and their administrative costs to resolve this Please don't copy and paste what I've said, use your own words. HB NB This is a suggested reply, don't send it before they write to you because we need to see what they say.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi,

 

About 4 years ago now my husband got a new job which paid a decent salary.

 

A couple of months ago someone in the wages dept of his works said to him about his tax code seemed odd and he ought to call and check it was correct.

 

He did so and apparently he has been fined for not filing self assessments for this job - he didn't realise he had to and no-one at work mentioned it.

 

Anyway i filed all outstanding returns for him which is basically just giving HMRC the info they have already provided to him on the P60's!?!? why.....

 

Anyway he gets confirmation back all filed and then a breakdown of what he owes (all charges - no tax) which comes to almost 6K! then he gets confirmation he is getting a tax refund back of £1900!? This amount has just been paid into his account and HMRC have said he has until 2nd week in November to pay all charges.

 

What is the best way of challenging this as he has spoken to about half a dozen different people at HMRC who all said basically tough!!

 

Thanks in advance.

Was he self-employed before taking up this job? Does he have other income which would require a SA tax return? If not then they are just plain stupid and that is easily challenged. they will ahve to prove they sent out the SA tax return forms each year. However, you action filling out and returning a form has probably saved their bacon whe it comes to the success of a high level complaint.

It is something you will now have to take up with your MP and persuade them to taek this to the minister concerned and trya nd force the Govt ombusdman to get involved.

he has never been self-employed and he doesn't have any other income/salary - apparently because he earned over a certain amount he had to start filing returns which i find absolutely ridiculous! you are just giving info to HMRC that that they have already given to you - i mean how stupid and unnecessary is that - unless i am missing something :(

Did he receive any SA returns from HMRC?

Then any notifications of a penalty for not returning the forms?.

 

What year(s) is/ are involved?.

 

If he can truthfully say that he never received the SA forms and no reminders / notification of penalties, then he might appeal, but:

If HMRC are to believe this, they'll consider how many letters from HMRC he is going to be saying he didn't receive ........ almost £6000 of penalties / interest on penalties suggests that

a) this has been going on a while,

b) relating to a number of tax years.

 

Did he really not receive a single return or notification of penalty?.

You are missing something : that people with higher incomes may well have other income (interest / dividends) that they need to declare.

The SA return is an opportunity to inform HMRC that you have no other taxable income.

I had the same issue over multiple years. Penalties and interest for non return of SA forms after returning to employment from self employed - I had to SAR the revenue as I disposed of letters older than 6 years. In the pack was copy of letter from them in 2004 stating that I no longer had to fill in SA forms. Despite this I had to fill in 2004 to 2013, of which the first 5 years were out of time. It was only after contacting my local MP, and onwards Lin Horner, that 15k of penalties were removed, as no tax was due for that period. I may add that HMRC never contacted about the debt, despite having my address via PAYE. It was a DCA that contacted me!
