This client was referred to us through another client of ours. This client had not been submitting his personal Tax returns punctually. He had been in and out of employement/ self employed & job seekers allowance.
The client was sent a letter by the HMRC demanding tax on the tax returns for the past 17 years, totalling to an amount of £48,000. This client had genuine mitigating circumstances from his personal life that had resulted in him to this difficult situation. We took this case to the HMRC special relief department that investigates and determines the resolve in such cases.
The case was fought were 1.5 years and resulted in the client paying zero. PAID Absolutely nothing towards the £48k that had been assessed by the HMRC.
