Thanks for the quick answer, I don't want the HMRC officer to visit my house again though, I've three autistic children with differing levels of need so don't want that hassle for my wife at all. Should I speak to him to tell him I will be writing to them?
One thing I can't work out is why they can't just see all this from my VAT number, do they not have access to that information from that?
OK - thanks but it's not got to the nub of it for me, can I just ask HMRC to review my VAT number to see what trading has been done?
I'm concerned that I say that I've not traded, they say prove it, and I can't because you can't prove a negative !
You are right, I have missed returns for some time, because I thought the company was not trading/deregistered.
Happy to rate you for payment, just want to get real clear on what to say!
