    • Thanks for the advice and pointers much appreciated, letter will come from daughter in law but I would type it her up and print it off for her.   The officer told her he could not guarantee it would not happen again like you say I am astounded the Police have time to be stopping a driver who has proved 5 times now that she is legal to be on the road none of it makes sense.
    • We requested evidence for the PCNs and have received this. Where do we go from here?  BW_Legal_Evidence-compressed.pdf
    • Definitely move the cars ASAP, the bailiff will come back and clamp them, don't wait bailiffs can now call on Sundays and most Bank Holidays.
    • What should you do? Totally ignore them. Next time you are there take photographs of Athena's notice at the entrance to the car park plus the position of the others as well as any difference between the T&Cs of their signs. Also a picture of their payment meter as the T&Cs there are often different from the signs. Check with the local council to see if Athena have permission to erect signs and ANPR cameras under the Town & Country [Advertisements] Regulations -they are often online these days. Also ignore any future correspondence from them and their unregulated debt collectors and do not be afraid of ever escalating fees most of which have no basis in Law. The time to come back to us is if they send you a letter of claim where a snotty letter to them may discourage them.Also read other threads on here to get an idea of the numties you are dealing with. One amoeba has more intelligence than all the car parking rogues together. It is still worthwhile contacting Lidl even without your receipt and especially where you have a record of regular visits to them.
    • First, I'm a bit surprised that your local police force has the manpower and time to waste chasing up a complaint from a member of the public that a motability car's paperwork may not be in order, bearing in mind that most forces can't be bothered to follow up reported burglaries, if stories in the popular press are to be believed.  But if that's what the police officer has told you, that's what he's told you.   If you want to follow up his suggestion to make a complaint, check your local force's website for how to do so.  Or (bearing in mind the history of problems that you've had before) write straight to the Chief Constable (website again).   Simply say you want to make a complaint about the number of times your daughter (or whoever) has been stopped by the police for no apparent reason.  Give a list of when and where this has happened and what the outcome was (presumably that the police took no further action).  I would also add that in the latest incident the police officer actually suggested making a complaint about the number of stops.  Not only do you (or your daughter or son or whoever it is) find this police action to be extremely distressing, but you also consider it a waste of scarce police resources.   Ask for an explanation as to why this keeps happening and ask for an assurance that the police will stop doing it.   You may also want to add (see what others advise about this) that the police officer in the latest incident also told you that they had received a call from someone saying that the car's paper work "might not be in order".  Say that you are concerned that whoever made this false allegation is wasting police time.  (You may want to think carefully about this as it may not improve your daughter's relationship with her neighbour!  If the allegation came from the neighbour.)   Those are my initial thoughts but it's a bit late to be thinking clearly.  See what others suggest rather than just relying on my suggestions.   [The letter really needs to come from your daughter (or whichever family member keeps being stopped) and not you, unless you can make it perfectly clear in the letter who it is that is being stopped etc. and that you are complaining on their behalf.  Is that clear?]

Might have been underpaid - what are my next steps?

Recommended Posts

Hi - I am looking for some advice and hope that someone can help.

 

I did nearly two years work for a company and was paid into my limited company following time sheets being approved.

 

Despite the ultimate client being fine payment was through a third party and at the end of their contract I found myself with a discrepancy of quite a few thousands based on my calculations (I accept these may not be accurate although I think they are).  I have spoken to the company many times and they have promised to look into it but never seem to reply.

 

As I want clarification that payments are correct rather than going straight for legal action any advice on what my next step should be would be greatly appreciated (a SAR maybe?)

 

Thanks in advance.

You need an accountant to calculate exactly what you are owed and claim this sum.

I say to contact an accountant because you're not sure of your own figures, so before claiming anything I would prefer to have a solid figure to go with.

If you have all the timesheets and rates, an accountant shouldn't charge more than a couple of hundred,  surely cheaper than the few thousand you're owed.

I have to agree with Kingly, you cnat go at this full tilt and then have to admit in a court that you dont ahve a clue whetehr the sums are right or wrong.

Youw ill need to look at the original contract and also understand/be able to explain what the third party does and what agreement you have with them

Thanks for the replies.  I really appreciate your help.

 

I will get it validated from my side but I still need to have confirmation from them what they consider they have paid me and what they think they should have paid me. 

 

Do you consider a SAR would be a good idea?

Not at this stage.

They haven't denied under paying you, so it might be a simple matter of getting a figure backed up by an accountant calculations and ask for the money.

They might just pay it.

Used to happen all the times in building sites in my days.

Sorry for the delay in updating but I have been so busy.

 

The information is now all with my accountant so I can see what happens next.

 

Thanks for the advice which I have followed
