If you get something from HMRC that you don’t agree with – ask us!
Author: Russell SmithAugust 21, 2015
Because I deal with HMRC correspondence and paperwork every day, I never quite appreciate the nervous spine-tingling feeling that most people have when they open up a letter from HM Revenue & Customs.
Furthermore, when most people read a letter from HMRC they immediately assume that whatever is written on the letter is correct. In addition, not everybody is that comfortable with numbers or money so the letters often are difficult to understand.
The part of the letter that isn’t difficult to understand is the part that says ‘PLEASE PAY’.
This is unfortunate, since when I look at a letter from HMRC I always assume it is wrong! Of course, most of the time it isn’t, but I am always skeptical.
The reason for this, is because I have been in countless situations where a client has received a letter or a demand for payment that has ended up being incorrect so I never take the letters as red.
If you have a letter or a demand for payment that you don’t think is correct – send me an email at Russell@rsaccountancy.co.uk
