was not in the uk at all in 1997 as returned home to lanzarote on 15/12/96
the assessment was first requested on 04/03/96
here are the figures for the last statement i received from the csa AFTER I HAD POINTED OUT THEIR ERROR S !! AND AFTER THEY SAID IT WAS TOO LATE BECAUSE IT HAD GONE TO TRIBUNAL !
then they sent me this statement with adjusted figures and reads as follows
04/03/96 to 16/11/97=623D @53.11-53.11/7 =£0.00
17/11/97 to 15/06/03=2037D @53.11-0.00/7=£15454.92 U/C
16/06/03 to 05/10/03 = 112D @53.11-75.66/7=£360.80 O/C

TOTAL UNDERCHARGE £20,820.97
TOTAL OVERCHARGE £23,051.57
We have reduced your arrears by this amount .your arrears balance now stands at £4521.82
i would have thought you would have deducted one from the other to give you the figure but apparentley that s not how they do it !!
My whole point is that i left in 1995 to live abroad having found a home and job !
i have sent proff of this to the csa by way of address and a letter from my ex employer !! i am also going to take a witness to the tribunal with me as i lived with him and his wife for a good 19 months before i got back on my feet !! the csa are having none of it and won t accept this, hence the dispute !! they only contacted me when i had returned in 1996 to finalize my affairs before leaving on the 15/12/96 of which i have proof by means of my ferry tickets from the uk to spain and from spain to lanzarote again the csa are having none of it !! last but not least i wrote a letter to the csa stating i was leaving to return home to lanzarote to take up my job position as i had been in the uk too long and had been threatened with termination of employment if i didn t return within 14 days so hence i left the uk on the 15 dec 1996 , THEY HAVE LOST THIS LETTER !! and in my view conveniently !! i also wrote to the csa in 2003 informing them of my intention to return to the UK which they received ! my other point being i wrote to inform them of coming back to the uk so why wouldn t i write to them to say i was leaving ??? they are taking the date of 27/1/97 which is the date they got a letter from my ex wife saying i d gone to live in tenerife and that d i d opened a bar ,, which couldn t be further from the truth as i went to lanzarote to work as a salesman for a real estate company the person i lived with for 19 months was also a friend from my past and my work colleague who got me the job initially
