    • you've not dobbed yourself in as the driver so IMHO go radio silent now.   i have removed the link and external appeal letter text.   next even if outside of scotland do not ever appeal   DX    
    • So you decided to sell your estate car (which was perfectly suited to your personal/domestic circumstances) and replaced it with first a van and then a 4x4 to allow you to use your own vehicle for work?   Why did you never tell them to supply a works vehicle?  Why did you never tell them that it would no longer be possible for you to carry out your duties if they did not supply a suitable works vehicle?  If you work for a local authority I can't believe that they would not have supplied a vehicle if you'd just asked for one.  That's what you should have done before buying a van!   As others have said, I can't see that you are entitled to any legal remedy for a decision you made yourself.  But as someone else has said, nothing to stop you asking...
    • As dx says, being in Scotland gives you a great advantage.   When you wrote you'd appealed I feared you'd thrown that advantage away, as generally in an appeal motorists out themselves as the driver - but you didn't!   How did you pay for the items you bought?
    • Hi thanks a lot for answering! Here are my answers:   It is a PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] (must be received within 14 days from the Incident)   1 Date of the infringement 12/09/2021   2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 17/09/2021   3 Date received 24/09/2021   4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] Yes   5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? There is a photo of my registration plate on entry and exit.   6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] Yes. I used a template shared on this page:      ction on Pre-Action Conduct then I will make a formal complaint to the DVLA Data Sharinuthority to disclose or refer this letter or any other   communication from me to any other person or organisation.   Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up Yes:   Having carefully considered the evidence provided by you we have decided to reject your appeal for the following reasons: The car park is operated by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) – cameras capture an image of vehicles entering and leaving the car park and calculate their length of stay. Parking at the above site is limited to 15 minutes. On entry to private land it is the responsibility of the driver to check for signage and ensure that your vehicle has been correctly parked. Your vehicle was parked longer than 15 minutes, therefore the notice was issued correctly and remains payable. vehicles found not adhering to the signage will be issued with a parking charge notice (PCN). Please be advised that there are a number of signs around the car park indicating the restrictions of the site and it is the responsibility of the driver to read them when parking. With regards to the reference to “Pre-Estimate of Loss/breach of consumer contracts 1999.” Please be advised that the Supreme Court has made judgement (04/11/15) that clearly sets out the issue of parking charge notices on private land (law of contract applies) and in particular pre-estimate of loss. The parking charge notice is enforceable on the basis that it protected a legitimate interest when the driver failed to adhere to the terms and conditions and was not extravagant, exorbitant nor unconscionable. The parking charge is not an unenforceable penalty and does not breach the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999. Please make payment of £100.00 by visiting our website at www.eurocarparks.com or use the automated telephone service 0203 553 4559. Alternatively make your cheque payable to Euro Car Parks Limited (to include a £2.50 handling charge for cheque processing) and post to Euro Car Parks Ltd, 30 Dorset Square, London, NW1 6QJ, quoting the PCN number on the reverse of the cheque. This amount is now due and the charge will be held for 14 days to allow time to make the payment. If payment is not received within this time further charges will apply. You have now reached the end of our internal appeals procedure.   You can make an appeal to the Independent Appeals Service, POPLA (Parking on Private Land Appeals) using the unique POPLA Reference code provided above. Please note, should you decide to appeal to POPLA, or if you appeal to POPLA and your appeal is subsequently rejected, the option to pay a discounted amount will NO longer be available and the FULL AMOUNT of the PCN will become due.   Please note - if the ticket was issued in SCOTLAND and or NORTHERN IRELAND, ONLY “THE DRIVER” can appeal to POPLA. If you/the driver decides to appeal to POPLA, you will need to visit the website, www.popla.co.uk, where further details of how to appeal (either online or by downloading the relevant forms) can be found.   If the driver is unable to access the website, please call us for further information on how to obtain the forms. Please ensure that the POPLA Reference Number as noted above is quoted on all correspondence to POPLA. The driver has 28 days from the date of this letter to submit an appeal to POPLA. If the driver appeals to POPLA, we will suspend recovery activity on the PCN.   Appeals may NOT be accepted if payment is made against the Parking Charge Notice, including any appeals logged via POPLA, if applicable.   If you choose to do nothing, we will seek to recover the monies owed to us via debt recovery procedures and may proceed with Court action against you.   By law we are also required to inform you that the Ombudsman Services (www.ombudsmanservices.org/) provides an alternative dispute resolution service that would be competent to deal with your appeal. However, we have not chosen to participate in their alternative dispute resolution services. As such should you wish to appeal then you must do so to POPLA, as explained above.   Yours sincerely   7 Who is the parking company? Euro car parks (ECP)   8.

Hi, I have received a letter from Tax Credits stating I have been overpaid by 943.00. Approx 700 of this is from tax year 02/03. I have my original letter stating income my income must not exceed 7500.00 or I may received too much tax credit and may have to pay it back.. my income for that year was £6100. I have stated this is the appeals letter. The other problem I have is that in August 05 I moved in with my partner so ceased to claim as a single parent. My partner has a good wage so we were not eligible to received any more payments. My claim lasted from April 05 to August 05. I then started working full time. When i queried the 200 overpayment for this year I was told it was because my wages had increased for 05/06??? Surely after Aug 05 I could earn as much as I like as I was no longer claiming but they say not they still assess me over the whole year. Had I been told this I would not have increased my hours. Anyone any advise as I am still awaiting the outcome from DWP:p

Tax year 02/03. Assessment will have been been done initially on 01/02 earnings. At the end of the tax year it will have been re-done on 02/03 earnings less up to £2500*

 

If 02/03 earnings more than £2500 higher than 01/02 then the first £2500 for 02/03 is ignored. If earnings did not increase by £2500 then the assessment would have remained on 01/02 earnings.

 

Ask them for a copy of their calculation as a starter.

 

05/06 - they are correct in what they are saying (assuming calculation itself is correct).

 

Not asking you to disclose answer to this bit. If your joint earnings are below £58000 (after deducting pension contributions) then you can still claim £545 per year. If over this amount then you may still be entitled to a smaller amount. Not a lot but if you have to repay it is worth claiming.

Yes it is true. If you have pension deductions made by your employer then the taxable pay is after the deductions, so you do not need to deduct again. If you pay pension contributions directly by say direct debit from your account to a personal pension then you do need to deduct it.

 

More details are on page 32 & 36 of HMRC's booklet (link below)

Thanks, our joint earnings are no where near £58000 ( i wish) but when we claimed as a couple was told we dont qualify? Think I will wait for the outcome and claim again - if I do have to pay back the 900 I would rather pay it back from tax credits I wasnt getting anyway.

Sorry made a slight error, the limit is £50K per year to get at least £545pa.

Here is a link to HMRC’s booklet which gives examples of what you can get depending upon number of children and income. They are in the process of updating the booklet to include 06/07 rates so some of the amounts due are currently underquoted.

I am guessing your joint income is above the limit for getting the standard working tax credit in addition to the child tax credit.All their quoted amounts are on the basic elements you can claim. There are others that you can claim, for example, you can claim up to 80% for approved childcare costs (includes after school clubs) if you both work at least 16 hours per week.

http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/leaflets/wtc2.htm#b3

HMRC also have a calculator you can use to work out your own award. It only asks for financial information to work out an estimate of the award, there is no fields to put your name, address etc.

http://www.taxcredits.inlandrevenue.gov.uk/Qualify/DIQHousehold.aspx

If you do pay childcare costs and your award is low then there other schemes that may be of a greater benefit. You can take the childcare element off your HMRC claim and use childcare vouchers instead. The childcare vouchers offer a reduction to your tax and national insurance and both your partner and yourself can claim. It is sometimes better to use this option if available, and many have online tools for you to work out how much you can save in tax/national insurance. The downside to these schemes is that it has to be offered through your employer. Although there is some administration required by the employer they too can claim a reduction to their national insurance, so it can be an advantage to them to set up the scheme. One such scheme is run by busybees. Although their site gives a lot of information about how childcare vouchers work, I cannot post a link as I think it is classed as a commercial site.
