What would you like to know about this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Their was no such additional payment to me, the £5,000.00 was incurred because of the amount that I did receive being grossed up and due to being over the 20% tax threshhold I incurred 40% tax plus additional N. I. Contributions. The payment I received in my hand was £5,800.00 what he is alleging is that I got a further £5000.00.
