    • Different statements. One has “at 59 mph overtaking on the approach” and the other “it was overtaking on the approach and in ....... at 49 mph”. So not the same statement (same ethos, different sentence structure).   perhaps they chose that site for the officer because it is an accident hotspot, and they know people do dodgy overtakes (while speeding) there .....??  
    • Hi.   I've moved your thread to the Bailiffs forum. People should be along to advise later.   HB
    • So a little update;   Of the 6 letters I sent 3 were acknowledged. One accepting £1/month for now and two from the same creditor trading under different names asking for full I&E which I haven't done.   In a moment of madness I managed to depsoit 5k to a gambling site I didn't have due to paypal's crazy policy of allowing payments which are to be collected by direct debit after a couple of days to gambling sites! Mad they allow this but this will show as a negative paypal balance (in a different account to the original "debt"). The first paypal -£5k account has been closed and passed to a DCA now. I have ignored them.   My council has appeared to have stepped up their collection efforts for £2.5k in alleged housing benefit overpayment from 2015/16. I have acknowledged their letters over the past 3 years each time by email but they rarely respond to my pleas. I truly think if there was overpayment then it was for less than half the amount they claim. At the time I didn't think I was being overpaid because I wasn't really working but I had stopped claiming JSA/ESA (and told them as much) but earned a couple of hundred pounds a month from sporadic work.   Also what I thought was a dormant debt from 2016 to Halifax has been actually sold ( to caboot? I think. Hard to keep track of everyone)   I've been getting phone calls daily but ignoring them for the most part. I did request all communication in writing in my original letters.   I feel incapable of dealing with these creditors and whilst initially I was feeling that I would be happy to just ignore all the letters (arreas, defaults and the like) and phone calls for an indefinite amount of time and  hope to make it 6 years to statute barred-ness and accept or defend any CCJ attempts that did arrive. I figured that avoiding these creditors for 3 months so far is 5% of the way there to statute barred! But I figre for these fairly sizeable amounts they probably won't all let it go and I will get some CCJ docs (never had to deal with that) However now my mood and thinking has changed.    I am looking again at insolvency. I'm over the DRO limit now so its BR or nothing. I was wondering why you said to not consider this and it would be stupid @dx100uk? Although shirking my debts/responsibilities it does seem like an "easy" way out at the moment. It would be so nice to know that what's done is done and to be able to draw a line in the sand and start again in a year or so and not have to avoid creditors or worry about what's coming next...   It certainly would help the environment what with the amount of letters that are arriving already(!) considering the first payment I missed was october/november (excluding the old halifax and council debts). I am exordinately stressed about it now even though I thought I would be already . Any advice would be great if it was to get my head out of the sand and contact people/do the ignoring thing and seeing what happens/reasons  to do or not to do bankruptcy for these unsecured debts?   Thanks      
    • Hi everybody   Had a knock on my door and was confronted by either a Bailiff or enforcement agent (not sure about the specific job title). When I opened the door he stuck his foot in so I couldn't close the door. I was video taping him so I took a few steps backward (to get him in shot) and he just fully entered the property despite me saying that I was denying him entry and he refused to leave thereafter.   Turns out that he was there to collect a court issued fine. I think from a Magistrates Court. He worked for this outfit:   www.marstonholdings.co.uk   The reason for the fine was something to do with "driving without car insurance". Now I had a cheap car a few years ago but it broke down and would cost more to fix than it was actually worth. So I sold the car for scrap and cancelled the insurance. Turns out you have to inform the DVLA when you scrap a car and them that it is no longer on the road (I was unaware). So this was the circumstances of the visit.   My question is did he have the lawful right to enter the property? I always thought these people were like vampires i.e. they can only come in if you invite them in.   tia Bear

Hi,

 

Happy holidays. I am looking for some guidance.

 

Just returned home with nice letter from HMRC about VAT return of £571.

This is for period of 27th July to 31st Oct.

 

I have bought some items to flip on amazon back in June/July total 120 units, that cost me £1080 in total.

I have sold them all for £2,395.93 - the amazon fees.

This was sold during 6th July to 27th to be exact.

 

Then I decided to open a VAT account and look for some distributor accounts,

however never been able to find good products and decided I need to close VAT account as the only way to get in with distributors was to have VAT account.

 

I have closed my VAT account, however never filled VAT return and did not think anything of it now.

I would like to pay the VAT, but I don't believe 571 quid is the right amount.

 

How can I work out how much I have to pay and file the return?

It says I have 30 days from the date of letter to file or there may be penalties.

 

Please see picture attached of the letter.

 

Thanks

The basics to VAT are that you purchase an item say for £100 + the VAT @ 20% = £20 total payment £120. You then sell the item at say £240 inc VAT = £40. The difference is what the VAT man is due - in this case £40 - £20 = £20. For the period given you need to know what your sales & receipts are to submit a return. If you did not make any sales or purchases then your submissions are £0 Sales & £0 Receipts. Until you you submit then they will hound you for the money they have assessed you owe.

Thanks that makes sense. How can I go about submitting my return? I have tried to do it online and when I request access to VAT it comes with below message.

The VAT Helpdesk is actually quite good 0300 200 3701 open 8am - 6pm closed Bank Holidays, you will need your VAT Reg No plus other info they may ask you. Do you already have a Government Gateway user ID & password?

I suspected it may be best to call them on Monday morning. I noticed they are closed on weekends. Yes I do have both ID & password, just doesn't let me progress further. Perhaps it could be the case because I closed my VAT account and did not fill in my return.

That could be a strong possibility - HMRC never did do joined up thinking. I've had more than my fair share of run ins with them

The most common cause of the error you reported is that you have more than one gateway account. Definitely check this with the VAT helpline.

Can confirm this in fact was the problem, hence I could not access my return. Thanks!

 

Following on from here I did not want to create another thread, so thought would make this one live. Advise if otherwise I should create a new thread.

 

Problem that I have now that during 31st October and 8th January (today) I have sold products worth £24k, however I did not charge any VAT on this as it's under 85K threshold.

 

Is there anyway for me to backdate my VAT and close the account as of 31st October, as honestly speaking I did not need it. Or would I be able to close only as of today's date and would I have to pay the VAT back out of my own pocket for this period? Hope this makes sense.

 

Thanks

Just learned that I cannot back date my VAT deactivation date :( Is this true? I don't know how I am going to find £6k to pay for this now as my business has not even made this much in profits...

Thought I had already responded to this.

 

To file your VAT in you need to know how much you spent on stock exVAT, the VAT you were charged, how much you sold it for exVAT - if it is the £24k you say then the VAT exclusive figure for that is £20k.
