Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Do you complete a self assessment Anually?
Its bad news I am afraid. It your tax and therefore even though you are PAYE you would be liable for the underpayment.
This is because you would have had to needed to pay tax on it anyway.
So you had earnings which should have had more tax deducted.
So your employer may have been negligent but you would have received less as it should have been taxed.
Sadly you are liable.I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
But you would have received a reduction in wages anyway, so in reality you would have paid it.
But the law says you are liable to HMRC, you can try and sue your employer but you would have had reduced payments in any event.
Does that clairfy? Alex
They were responsible for notification, but YOU are liable for the tax.
Does that clarify?
Yes. But you cant demand they help to pay it - they cant pay it for you.
They can assist in that it is paid by instalments, but thats it.
Does that clarify? Alex
