Hello Dandeep, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question. Firstly when you left did you complete a Form P85 and send it to HMRC? If you did not then you should do so immediately. Fortunately it is available on the web and can be flied on line. HMRC will then make you non resident for the tax year after your date of departure and furthermore split your leaving year into two portions, one resident and one non resident. Were you paid under PAYE arrangements during your stay in the UK? You are only required to self assess if you are in receipt of income which has not been taxed at source or if HMRC request a return. Thus if these apply to you than your should appeal the penalties which you do by means of a letter on the grounds that it has been improperly imposed. I do hope I have shown you a way forward.

Thanks Keith,
I haven't filled P85 before i left.
What does UK paid PAYE arrangements mean?
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 1 year ago.
Most workers in the UK have their income tax and national insurance contributions deducted by their employer under PAYE (Pay As You Earn), a system introduced in the early 1940s. Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the Just Answer site.

Sure Keith. I will rate you.
Yes I was paid through PAYE.Now, To conclude -
First i should fill P85.
Second, I need to appeal the penalty giving the above details/Should i be specific while giving reason.At last i need to self access.Thanks,
Sandeep
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 1 year ago.
In that case unless HMRC asked you to self assess they have no grounds for issuing a penalty for failure so to do. You should tell them that in your appeal. You should complete and submit a P85. You could self assess on line, but only do this if HMRC has asked you to self assess. I would be inclined to tell HMRC in your appeal letter that you were paid under PAYE so why should a self assessment be needed anyway. Thank you for your support.
