HMRC are proposing to serve a Statutory Demand under section 268(1)(a) of the Insolvency Act 1986. They are claiming just over £85,000.00.
I did havean arrangement in place with them to pay £1500.00 per month & that failed late last year due to losing my business & subsequent illness.
After a horrendous divorce, I keep trying to move forward, but take two steps forward & three back. I was going to contact HMRC to try to come to a resolution, but I think my ex father in law gave them an address & they turned up all guns blazing & left a slightly terse letter.
They have had my mobile number & my email address & have not tried to contact me whatsoever since I last spoke to them. I would prefer to pay my dues over say ten years, but they need to be realistic & also take on board that circumstances can change.
I have no assets really now for the time being until I rebuild, but I have pride & I would prefer to get them to realise that nothing means nothing & a monthly payment over ten years is money for the treasury to utilise.
I hope these comments are some assistance. Mark.
Hi, without a breakdown, I cannot say for certain. However, it sounds about right, but the addition of lots of fees & interest has not helped.
I have found that if an MP gets involved, they start to listen & otherwise they do not. I do not dispute that tax is due, but recovering nothing as opposed to thirty odd percent over ten years is silly. I do appreciate that many people would just go bancrupt, but I feel I should get a chance to pay as much as I can & so on.
