The robinson+co tax department says.....

robinson+co is closed from 12.30pm on Christmas Eve until 08.45am on Monday 5 January 2015 and this does have consequences for tax returns.


Firstly, if you wish your 2013/14 underpayment to be collected via an adjustment to your 2015/16 PAYE code, we must receive your signed tax return by 11.30am on Christmas Eve so that we can submit it to H M Revenue & Customs ahead of their deadline.


If the return is not submitted by close of play on Christmas Eve, then you will have to make a full payment of your liability due on 31 January 2015.


When we return to work on 5 January we will have 20 working days to complete all outstanding tax returns ahead of the filing deadline of 31 January: if you have not already done so it would be appreciated if you could let us have the appropriate information as soon as possible.


“It is noticeable that H M Revenue & Customs is getting ever more aggressive as to penalties for late submission of returns and payment of tax,” says Victoria Bishop, robinson+co’s Tax Partner. “HMRC is less and less sympathetic, even to genuine circumstances, so if we can to avoid getting to that point all the better.”


Also, if you anticipate trouble in making the tax payment due on 31 January 2015, please let us know as soon as possible and in any case before the payment date. “Again,” says Victoria, “HMRC is getting more and more aggressive and we are hearing horror stories from distressed clients about the attitude of HMRC.”


If we are able to contact HMRC on your behalf before the payment date we may be able to take some of the unpleasantness out of the situation. Let us know how much you can pay upfront and how much you can pay each month and we will contact HMRC and help you.


“What a gloomy discourse,” finishes Victoria. “Everyone is going to think I’m a real party pooper, when actually I just want to help all our clients to have as little contact as possible with HMRC, and be able to enjoy Christmas and have a prosperous 2015!”
