    • Couple of things to point out. Council won't be interested in dog's poo in the caravan as it is private property.  At best the h&s department would take a statement and pictures and if it happened again they would act.   As the devil's advocate I would ask: 1. If you were so distressed to ask £4k compensation as suggested,  why did you stay for the full length of the holiday? Is it because your complaint was addressed and caravan cleaned? 2. Bed bugs? Where are the evidence? Couldn't it be another insect's bite? Most of the world population occasionally wakes up to a sore bite from unknown insects.  This can happen anywhere,  even in your house. Hands up if you have never experienced a mosquito bite in your house. 3. Manager took ownership of the problem immediately and fixed the faults. What else could he do? Move you from a caravan site to a 5 star presidential suite? Did you ask for this in writing there and then or you accepted the fix? 4. They offered £500 compensation. That's more than a quarter of the cost of the holiday. I don't think a judge would find that unreasonable.  5. Unfortunately the law doesn't act on ifs, so if something doesn't happen you won't get much interest. IF your boy had eaten the poo, the claim could have escalated by a large margin, but you, as a responsible parent, prevented this and nothing happened to your boy who went on to have a jolly good time. So unfortunately you can't claim for something that didn't happen.  To better understand this, think about a window cleaner leaving his ladder resting on a wall. IF the wind blows it on my car i could claim damage, but not before it happens.   So, my approach would be more pragmatic, by all means ask for more and see what happens, but £500 it's already a good offer in my opinion.    For future reference, whenever i go to holiday parks, caravan sites etc., first thing I do is to clean the lot. It takes an hour or so, but then i'm sure that i won't get any problems from hidden bacteria or other nasty surprises.  I know it shouldn't be this way, but it is. Us, the consumer,  have pushed for cheaper and cheaper prices and this is the result. We need to adapt unfortunately or we would be in court every day. Then there would be no time for holidays.
    • Hi, Last payments were around 2009. The last time any sort of letter showed up was about 3 years ago to my knowledge but only received by me a year after it was written as hung onto by my sister.    I haven't managed to open a bank account yet but made progress in what they required so will try this week.    Thanks for responding. At the time maybe I should have gone bankrupt in hindsight but before I left it pretty much all stopped after asking for the SAR' s. I had settled what I could prior to that.  Then after a big gap I started to get random debt agencies picking up on a few, irrespective of saying there were outstanding SAR requests they came and went and I did inform them where I was living overseas which is why Amex went for the RMA and then suddenly stopped.    You are of course right about running away. Seriously the whole thing gave me real depression which is something I only thought happened to other people. It has taken me all this time to get back to a place where I think I can take a deep breath and deal with it both for my sake and my mum.    I will keep a log. What happens might prove relevant to others and I can't see anyone else has kept one although a lot of people seem to have similar stories.    Thanks again        
    • Just make sure the Blue badge is visible in the car so the JBW bailiff can see it, otherwise he might clamp to put pressure on you.
    • Let them spout and don't tell them that you have recorded the call until its nearly ended and you have said you are logging date and time of all calls as they are in breach of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997    Prohibition of harassment. (1)A person must not pursue a course of conduct— (a)which amounts to harassment of another, and (b)which he knows or ought to know amounts to harassment of the other. [F1(1A)A person must not pursue a course of conduct — (a)which involves harassment of two or more persons, and (b)which he knows or ought to know involves harassment of those persons, and (c)by which he intends to persuade any person (whether or not one of those mentioned above)— (i)not to do something that he is entitled or required to do, or (ii)to do something that he is not under any obligation to do.]
    • It wasn’t recorded as to be honest, I was caught a little off guard however they are calling on a daily basis so I’ll make a point of recording the next one!   there won’t be any crumbling here. I’ve just been reading through the history of this to jog my memory on some of the events and it’s reminded me just how pathetic they are as a business. I fully intend to waste as much of their time and hopefully money as possible.

Hi everyone,

 

My son works for a sole trader and yesterday informed my son that due to a PAYE error (which he admits was his mistake) my son had underpaid tax for the past three months and an amendment would be made to this months wages.

 

This morning he checked his pay with the bank and found that his employer had deducted almost £1,000 as the unpaid tax (incidently, he only pays about £1200 for the whole year.

 

He is now left with insufficient funds to pay his rent and other essential bills.

 

His boss freely admits that the error is fully his error.

 

The HMRC haven't notified my son or the employer.

Thats bad PAYE Admin right there. They are supposed to deduct it equally over the remaining tax year to a degree. It may overflow into the next tax year if it is too much.

He needs to take this up with Payroll and they should amend accordingly.

Thanks fkofilee,

 

He's still waiting a reply from his employer.

 

We have gone through his payslips and have found the error ourselves, for the past few months instead of tax being deducted he has been having that amount as tax refunded - his employer has admitted that there was a problem with the PAYE software he uses to calculate staff pay.

 

Lesson for our son to always check the full payslip and not just the NETT pay - thing we all fell in to that trap in our younger days :roll:

His employer will be using RTI and depending on how he has made the entry will depend on what it says has to be paid for Tax & NI. The employer would have been better contacting HMRC for help as he may be able to change the weekly summaries. Has there been a big change in your sons tax code?

In short... Yes there will be...

Ask him to speak to HMRC in this case for an update on the tax code...

If there has been a change to the tax code then his employer will have been notified of this by HMRC.

You can use this to calculate what should be stopped each week and although we are on Week 35 you can change the date & week number to go back to the beginning of the tax year.
