Customer Question

I have a limited company and VAT registered. I financed the company with nearly £250,000 of my own money, and then after 6 months got hit with ill health. So the business was put on hold until the health issues are resolved. Meanwhile a claim rebate of nearly £22000 was sent to HMRC and an auditor attended to review files and the we had a huge clash of personality and she has made things very difficult. And rejected my claim. Because she says she believes that I have no intention of getting my money bank. so, the decision has lost me everything and I can no longer continue with my business, and I have no choice but to sign on as unemployed first time in my life.
What Can I do, when I disagree with the decision?
Please help!!!!

Alex Watts :

my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

please let me know when the decision was made?

JACUSTOMER-cgiosmbh- :

the decision was made on 18 December 2014. Which I received on 29th December 2014. I sent a letter on 5th January 2015 to say that I dispute her decision and received a letter asking me do I want the review to be made by and third party or HMRC internal.

Alex Watts :

Thank you. There is a set process that you need to follow which needs to be adopted.

JACUSTOMER-cgiosmbh- :

What is that please???

Alex Watts :

They will review it and it should be done by someone not connected with the current matter

Alex Watts :

Basically someone else at HMRC looks at it

Alex Watts :

If you then disagree with that outcome then you can appeal to the VAT Tribunal

Alex Watts :

That is a totally independent body and they will hear your appeal

Alex Watts :

They will either agree or disagree with you

JACUSTOMER-cgiosmbh- :

Is it better to ask third party external or internal??

Alex Watts :

You cant go to a Tribunal until you have had it reviewed

Alex Watts :

So process is:

Alex Watts :

1) Internal review

Alex Watts :

2) VAT Tribunal

JACUSTOMER-cgiosmbh- :

Is it better to get someone to act on my behalf??

Alex Watts :

VAT Tribunal yes. Internal appeal no

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything about this today please?

Alex Watts :

information please see:

JACUSTOMER-cgiosmbh- :

HMRC have also offered as an alternative ADR(Alternative Dispute Resolution) this involves a third party facilitator.

JACUSTOMER-cgiosmbh- :

Which one do I go for?

Alex Watts :

1) Internal review first

Alex Watts :

2) Then ADR

Alex Watts :

3) Then Tribunal

Alex Watts :

In that order

JACUSTOMER-cgiosmbh- :

Thank you. I have no further questions today, but should I have more questions, How do I get a hold of you. and Is that going to be included in this service??

Alex Watts :

You should start any questions W and they will come to me. You need to put Alex W as there are 3 Alex's on here confusingly.
