A loyal reader has written to me concerning HMRC debt recovery.
"Some of our clients are receiving threatening letters from HMRC claiming substantial amounts of PAYE underpaid for the year ended 5 April 2016.Have other readers been receiving these spurious demands, and does anyone know why HMRC have been sending them out?
In every case the end of year return has been submitted within the time limit and our records show that no tax is due.
When we phone HMRC they agree that nothing is due, and they are unable to explain why the letter was sent or where the "debt" figure comes from.
In every case it is a large round sum for tax and a similar amount for National Insurance, plus interest.
If the taxpayer is gullible enough to pay up the sum demanded by this letter, will this be shown as another great success story for HMRC?"
Tax does have to be taxing.
