Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Thanks for your question - I am Sam and I am one of the Uk tax experts on Just Answer.
Is the tax bill for you or for the company - ?
Can I ask why you set up the limited company?
When did you set it up and dis it ever trade
Did the accountant not alert HMRC for you that you had left the UK ?
Thanks for your question
As a director you would need to complete self assessment although if the company was always dormant then HMRC should have taken note from the Corporation Tax side of matters and noted that you did not need self assessment.
However if you never alerted HMRc that you had left the UK - then they had no way of knowing and all I can advsie is that you write to them and appeal the charges on the basis that
1) the companies never traded and
2) you had no other reason that you would have to be self assessment and
3) You left the UK and provide the date
They can then revise the position for you
Let me know if I can assist further

Are you able to scan or copy and paste?
Its from 2009 as this is as far back as the computer will go rather than represent the time from when it necessarily relates to -
Thanks for scanning and attaching the bill
This is personal tax bill - as charged on you an individual - I cannot see where you get 2009 from as the charges are shown up to 2016 -
HMRC system can only detail 6 full years which takes you back to 2009 (as at 13 March 2016 then 6 full years was 2008/2009 (now 2009/2010) This does not mean they will not pursue for any earlier charges that might br due, just they cannot be shown die to the age of them.
I also note that the NON residency seems to be aware that you may not be UK resident as the demand from come the demand comes from Charities Savings and International and they have perhaps sent this the London address as this is all they have (unless you still own this property or how else did you get these demands if you are not and have not been UK resident ?)
But my advsie still stands - you should appeal BUT note that you were given to 05/04/2016 to appeal so this is down to HMRCs discretion
Thanks for your response
This is not income as it relates to penalties due to your failure to complete tax returns they have sent - (then they would see there has been no income)
If your family own the property then they would be liable on any rent they receive (as the income arises in the UK) but this is not being charged on you and if they do not receive any rental income then they will not be liable to tax on it!
You will need to appeal in a letter and as a matter of urgency - do not wait until Auguest as too much time has already passed.
Use the address on the letter and sent this as soon as possible
