Hi can you advise on above tax issue

Hi,

I am an advisor at JA and happy to assist you.

You'll need to pay the child benefit back. I'll suggest that you appeal against the penalty on the basis that you didn't receive any letter before and its on HMRC's discretion if they can waive or not but no harm in appealing.

Regards

Muhammad
