HMRC seek repayment after Fast Tax Rebates Ltd take most of rebate

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have also been scammed by FTR Ltd in exactly the same way as @dixon2094

 

i received £5380 but HMRC want nearly 17k back as that’s what FTR took on my behalf.

 

I have requested my file via a SAR and emailed HMRC asking them to review my case.

I have also reported this to Action Fraud and have a crime number.  

 

Surely if there are so many instances of this happening HMRC have to take some accountability for releasing funds on so many occasions without any proof of investments to FTR Ltd?

Hi Schipoo and welcome to CAG

 

I've moved your post to a new thread you can use from now on.

 

Please give us a brief Bullet-Point summary of events including approx dates. Start with how and when you heard of FTR, the contact you had with them, what authority you gave them to act for you with HMRC, how HMRC then contacted you about needing a refund, what years you owe for and how much for each.

 

Include info about contact with Action Fraud, Police, etc.

 

Keep it brief but with useful info.

 

Thanks

We could do with some help from you

Hi @slick132

Thank you for your reply, I’ve never been on here before so no idea what I’m doing! 
I have all the paperwork at home so I’ll come on tonight and put all the figures and dates on then

Hi. We look forward to seeing your information later.

 

Dixon's EIS investment was allegedly in Cryoblast Solutions Ltd, a company set up by Alan O'Hara who also set up FTR Ltd but passed it to a new director this year. I know you're waiting for the SAR but does your online tax return mention Cryoblast or any other company please?

 

With three of you here now, hopefully we can start building evidence.

Hi, A lot of people I work with have done this and I was told it was for expenses I hadn’t claimed over 3 tax years, nothing about any investments.

 

I received £3591.73 on 16th March 2020 which was for tax years 2017/18 & 2018/19

 

then £2244.26 on 21st April 2020 for tax year 2019/20.

 

I got a letter on February 23rd 2020 from hmrc asking for certificates so I called them, I then forwarded my bank statements and screenshots of emails where I provided copies of my p60’s to Alan Maxwell at Maxwells Accountancy Services.

 

The payments came from Fast Tax Rebates Ltd. I also had some texts from Claire where she asked for my gateway code.

  

Hmrc now say that I owe in total £16940.87 payable now or interest on top. I have reported this to Action Fraud and asked hmrc to review my case and postpone any tax repayments.

Hi Schipoo,

 

I've had to edit your post above to make it legible.

 

Please do not post solid blocks of text - use paragraphs so it's easier for all to read.

 

The info you post about Maxwells Accountancy Services is v interesting and will be discussed by the Site Team.

 

In the meantime, please tell us :-

 

1. Briefly what was said when you spoke to HMRC after they asked for (I assume) EIS Certificates.

 

2. When did they issue the tax demands and when did you "appeal" them.

 

3. Have you had a Crime Ref No. from the police or Action Fraud.

 

If you know of others who were drawn into this Con, please get them to sign up here and post their experiences - the more who challenge this Scam in an organised manner, the better.

Sorry, just copied and pasted from my notes. 
 

The lady I spoke to asked me to tell her what had happened, which I told her, I said I hadn’t known about any investments and I had tried to contact Maxwells and they have left the premises they had and the email bounced back to me, she then asked me to provide all the info I had about the company including screenshots of emails, texts and bank statements. She told me I had done the right thing in calling and it would be looked into, but it could take some time as they would need to investigate. 
 

Yes I got a crime number from Action Fraud
 

The demands are dated 21st June and I asked for a review on 20th July.

Did they call you, having got your number from someone you know passing on your phone number.

Yes I have the address of the offices at the time. 
 

I was given their email address by a colleague at work and I provided them with my mobile number. I have 2 mobile numbers for them, I tried to contact them when hmrc contacted me asking for the certificates, one has been disconnected and the other went to voicemail

Me again.

 

When HMRC asked you for certificates, did they mention the term EIS [Enterprise Investment Scheme]? This is what the other people who used FTR were caught out on.

 

Also, as Slick said, it would be useful to know where Maxwell Accountancy Services are or any other details you have.

Yes they did. It said ‘I am looking at your claim for Enterprise Investment Scheme Income Tax Relief. Your return included a claim for 3 investments £24,000, £22,000 and £20,000 which generated an income of £6003.20, £5275 and £4836 paid to your nominee Fast Tax Rebates Ltd.

  • honeybee13 changed the title to HMRC seek repayment after Fast Tax Rebates Ltd take most of rebate

I haven't found anything on Maxwell Accountancy Services yet but at the same Tinklers Yard address, there's a registered company [now dissolved] called Marine Electrical Solutions Ltd. The director is Allan Maxwell.

 

The 01434 phone number you have is for the Business Centre in Tinklers Yard.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if your alleged EIS was for Marine Electrical Solutions, hopefully you'll know when the SAR turns up.

it looks like this Allan Maxwell is the person along with Claire Maxwell who has scammed me and a number of others into claiming rebates on our behalf investing in Ltd Companies he is a director of.

 

Thinking back to a conversation with Claire Maxwell she told me that the rebate would be spilt into 3,

I would receive a third,

the accountants a third for arranging and

the remaining third invests into a company as part of the scheme which stays in place for 3 years and then those funds could potentially be released back to me.

 

Not being an accountant myself I didn’t really get it at the time but hindsight is a wonderful thing hey!

That's very interesting, Schipoo. Claire has been mentioned before but we didn't know her surname was Maxwell! Do you have something in writing that proves that?

No I don’t think so however when I’ve done some digging into Allan Maxwells in the Blythe/north east region around his age it says they have a spouse called Claire
