Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether your letter has been signed for by HMRC?
It will have only arrived today
By last week, and no, as they said I do not need to submit a return, I didn't.
I am not required to submit a return, according to their own website. They have a section, Check if you need to submit a return, followed by a series of questions, to which I was able to reply NO. " We conclude you do not need to submit a self assessment return."
These demands are obviously computer generated, and no one is stupid enough to admit responsibility.
Thank you. I would not be too concerned for the moment.
If they have only today had the opportunity to receive your letter, it may take them a few days to respond.
I agree that the demands are computer generated.
You have 30 days from the date of demand to appeal, which you appear to have done.
That means for the moment you can ignore the demand for payment.
HMRC will then review the decision for you. But clearly this make take them a short while to respond.
HMRC are allowed up to 45 days to review your case.
If they find against you then you can appeal to the Tax Tribunal.
But I dont even think it would get that far.
As such at the moment you can ignore the demands.
But you have appealed which is what you need to do

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Sorry, for the delay in answering. I was travelling home when we started to chat.
