    • I agree with dx about the letter, please don't send that. I'll have a think about it later and I hope dx will have time to as well. Regarding you teaching undergrads, did you talk to your students union about how a criminal record would affect you?
    • sorry but that letter needs to be much much better. you need to express that it was a stilly youthful mistake trying to be the big man and jumping the turnstile to look big infront of your peers. TfL prosecutors are on the email address on their first letter. get the court form sent back to the court , (but copy it first) stating you plead guilty and wish to attend to address the judge in person face to face to show your genuine remorse for your stupid youthful exuberance.      
    • I thought I should send the begging letter to the prosecutor. Does the hearing means the time I need to send back by? If so, it’s June 5  I plan to send the new begging letter as following, can I ask for some suggestions? Dear Investigator/Prosecutor,  Thank you for your reply. I deeply regret my actions and the inconvenience they have caused.  I’m extremely remorseful for my crime. and regret it everyday. I often ask myself ‘’how can I do that thing just because I felt it is interesting. There are a lot of crimes in the world, but feeling it’s interesting is certainly not a reason to crime. I should not crime with any reason.’’ I think about these things every day, and I understand that I can’t blame anyone but myself.  I thanks to the staff who stopped me, as this is a valuable lesson in my life. I told myself that I should never ever repeat such a thing again, and never ever do anything which is possible to be in breach of any law. As a result, I carefully tap my oyster card every time before I enter the station now. I remind myself that I did a wrong thing before, and I should never let it happen again.  Although my monthly travel expenses do not warrant a season ticket, but I just renew my season ticket (please see the attachment). I understand that a crime cannot be truly compensated for, but purchasing a season ticket offers me a small measure of comfort, knowing that my actions caused a loss to the public interest.  I received an email which ask me to negotiate being class teacher in this summer (please see the attachment). I hope that I could teach the lovely students again, which may not be allowed with a criminal record. I would please ask that you would please provide me a single opportunity to settle all outstanding sums owed outside of court without the need for legal proceedings which would have a determinantal impact on my teaching career.  I sincerely apologise again for my crime. If you need anything further from me to help you please let me know.   Yours sincerely,
    • LoL Dx you crack me up. Thanks for the advice. I'll stay positive.
    • Utter Rubbish!! lowell dont write and beg for deals once they start court. as for your attitude, we'll thats nothing new for you.😎 you wont be quizzed, it's not like TV, simply refer to your defence/WS when answering anything the judge may ever ask. well it involves chickens. dx

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

HMRC- Compliance Interview tax credits **RESOLVED**


Nervous1234

Recommended Posts

Hi ,

I have been in receipt of tax credits and received a letter saying they need to have a phone interview with me and I have gotten myself into a terrible state of worry over it.

 

When I have logged back on to my claim I have realised that there was still a record of me paying weekly nursery fees- my son is now 8! 
 

Has anyone had anything similar to this and been prosecuted or is it a case of repaying any overpayments? 
 

thanks

mostly just a case of repaying what you owe . IF you owe it.

are you currently getting any benefits from them?

plenty of compliance interview threads here 

have a good read of at least 20 of them.

no need to worry , you wont get prosecuted.

then comeback with any questions.

Yes there have been similar HMRC TC cases reported.  As dx says, the just want the correct information and you will end up with a debt that you would owe,  which can be repaid over a period of time.

Tax Credits are coming to an end by the end of this year and people are in the process of being invited to claim Universal Credit instead. If there is  TC overpayment debt outstanding without a repayment plan, the amount would be advised to DWP and they would deduct from any benefits you had.

We could do with some help from you.

Yes I have still been receiving payments from them.

I’ve been looking through all the other posts pretty much since I received the letter when I got home from work.

I thought I had removed the childcare costs from the claim when I changed jobs. It would have been during covid and changing jobs so I may have overlooked it.

I am worried sick. I want to cry. I also think I may have had my husband as self-employed and not switched him to employed when his company went limited, but I have always updated his earnings.

The dates they are asking for proof of childcare payments are April’23-Feb’24. I don’t have any as I haven’t paid for childcare. Any advice?

I am not in receipt of any other benefits only tax credits.

in my head I’m losing my job, my home and going to prison!!

You're overthinking this, please stop. I think your state of mind means that you aren't taking in the words on the pages of the threads you've read.

You're not going to prison and you're not going to lose anything, nobody here has.

You need to get things up to date with the tax credits and arrange a payment plan you can afford, if you owe them anything.

Thank you. I’m definitely not in the right frame of mind. My work is overwhelming at the moment.

I suppose I just need reassurance.

I need to call them to rearrange my appointment.

I want it over with. I have Crohn’s Disease and the stress is not good.

  • 2 weeks later...

The guy was quite calm on the phone compared to my hysterical self .

He asked if I was asked to do the interview there and then on the phone and he simply explained that my award would be updated and if anything needed to be repaid it would be explained on my updated plan.

Turns out I had been overpaid but as far as I know they have been able to recoup that from my remaining award x

I rang first thing, the first time it cut off after 30mins and then the second time it was answered after 25 mins.

It seems these letters are part of migrating over to universal credit and I suspect I was flagged as I have not applied for UC when it moves over x

no I was on the phone less than half an hour.

My original interview wasn’t due to be until next week.

But I rang the day after receiving the letter which was the beginning of the month.

I’m just hoping somebody doesn’t still call on 26th

. My overpayment was less than £1000 x

I'm.so glad your sorted you must feel so much better. I did try ringing after I got the letter but couldn't get through and haven't had a day off in which they are open so haven't been able to. I think mine is more than that but can't be sure which is why I'm on edge so much
