The previous accountant went to jail for fiddling ect so I initially wrote to HMRC and was upfront about everything. I employed an accountant to redo the accountants as needed and these were submitted and accepted by hmrc. I was given a bill then for £18058.00 includes a penalty. I am working with HMRC directly on this just need help on how I can request more time to pay it off. Tku

Extra time upto 3 years or 2 years would be perfect

Your thoughts?

Thank you for your reply.

If you have not been in default with your tax payable in the past and produce a creditable payments plan to HMRC with assurances to clear your debt in full, in my opinion a payment period of no more than 24 months would be workable.

You should be able to demonstrate you are serious in your plan to discharge the liability. What is likely to go in your favour is a reasonable down payment of say up to £5,000

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

Please only rate my answer if it is acceptable
