My mum gets an Irish state pension which works out at around £9000 a year (depending on the exchange rate)
She also gets attendance allowance of £54.45 a week here in the UK which I looked up is not taxable.
I have just noticed that they only allow me to do a disclosure for 2011/2012
For 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 years have to be declared through self assessment. I assume I`ll get penalties there as well.?
On the penality under the disclosure you are given options
Depending why you didn`t tell them from the beginning.
Its says if You deliberately failed to tell HMRC you had started letting out a property and needed to make a return its 20%
You started letting out a property, and did not tell HMRC that youneeded to make a return, but you weren't deliberately trying tokeep the information from HMRC its 10%
So I assume the penalty is 10% as I didn`t try to hide it, I just didn`t understand it as I was getting different answers from everyone but should have contacted them sooner.
After talking to the let property campaign and explaining what you wrote I was told there was no need to return the disclosure form, so its ends there.
I then got on to the tax office about the self assessment, the person asked for my mums national insurance number but it seems the number is XXXXX in their system.
When my mum came to the UK she was already pension age so she wasen`t given a NI number as she didn`t work but when she applied for the attendance allowance a number had to be made up for her but this number didn`t come up on the tax office system.
The lady then told me as she is not on the system she dosen`t have to do a tax return.
Is this correct?
