    • hello   I was involved in an unpleasant incident at a company which I spotted was a regular thing happening there. It was not nice for me as I was mildly allergic, and I knew that it could have an even more negative reaction in some people. and so I had to do something to stop it.   I did not want to be aggressive in my response. I just said it was not malicious and tried to be helpful and reasonable, as there was risk of the same thing happening again to others, I was very helpful.   I was 'eventually' assured it would not happen again.   I thought I might be eligible for some form of compensation. They would not send me their policy’s when I asked.They would not discuss compensation funds. But they asked for my address and sent me a surprise gift, a rather large package of alcohol  beverages which most people would be overly happy about. Unfortunately  I cannot consume Alcohol.  I am old enough,  although, they did not check ID. I used cash at the company, no cards Although I did state my age by email.   It is hard to return a gift, it pulls on the heart strings.  But I politely said thank you very much, but I cannot consume alcohol due to my beliefs and please may I return the package and asked for a voucher or perhaps suggest something else.   They politely said to offer the alcohol to someone who could enjoy it and thanks for all the help.   Can anyone give any thoughts on this? Was I wrong to ask for the return of the package?   Thank you very much.    
    • That may well be the case as part of their T&Cs...which also states you have to pay £300 +VAT cancellation fee.....but you dont have any legal right as your LTD Company and not a Consumer..you dont have protection of the Consumer Rights Act.
    • Oh I didn’t know that. Any idea what those thresholds are? Also, what could they contest - the amount you’re claiming for?(as they couldn’t contest that they have infringed GDPR)
    • Lex Autolease have advised me that I do have the 14 day cooling off period. It's in their business contract t&c's.    I would like to cancel the finance part of it before the period is over but they won't let me and Lex are saying that I can't do it direct as they don't have paperwork yet.     
    • Yes Jase a default can be registered for current accounts that attract an overdraft...although the default would have placed by HSBC not Intrum Finance.There name would have been added when HSBC assigned the debt to them.   Andy

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Dryden Fairfax chasing HMRC debt

Recommended Posts

I have a recieved a letter to a family members address from drydens fairfax solicitors ,

looking to see if i live there or if the occupant has details of my address , phone number ect.

 

I am abroad at the moment.

Should i call them.

I guess they are looking for self assessment tax.

 

I know i have been very slack over the years as i only work about 6 weeks a year in the uk.

And spend very little , time there not working.

 

I have a socialised job and i travel and try to get worldwide contracts.

To be a mastercraftsman i have to take jobs from others to gain knowlege and eventually achiving my dream of travelling the world doing the job i love.

 

I know i have been very slack on my tax as i have no idea.

Should i call them tomorrow and sort out this.

Should i speak to the uk tax first.

I have no idea.

 

Thanks in advance of any replys.

oh yes sorry

it was one of their silly policy changes a while back after they dumped the other DCA and their dogs

advantis that's it was so many years ago I forget HMRC has now signed another contract with powerless no bodies.

are you earning in the UK

if not cant see why they are after you 

unless its an old benefit over payment from years ago they've dragged up.

 

when was the lasttime you filled an assessment form out?

were you self employed?

You cant be earning anything like the threshold for your uk earnings?

they probably want to collect the fortune in fines you have accrued for not fining your SA tax returns for the years you werent in the UK.

things get very complicate dwhen peopel work abroad but are domiciled in the UK.

Try speaking to HMRC or even the DWP about what it means, the DWP may be able to tell you abotu yopur NI contributions and how they afect your pension and give you a statement that you cna use to see what assumptions HMRC have made about where you live.

 Thanks for any advice  not sure who DWP are. Iv just emailed company  .. see what damage is  at end of day. If i can then go sort ma tax out might be easier to work worldwide wi visas n that... or just do job i want to do legit. Which must be possible.
