    Default HMRC enquiry letter for Winchester IQ Contract under section 9a

    Hi,
    I am one of you who received the HMRc enquiry letter (section 9a) for my return.
    HMRC says that I was with IQ contracts which was using some sort of loan scheme.
    Thay are asking all sort of information including my bank statements.
    I have spoken to CHSlimited which was set up by IQ to help ppl like us. They are advising no to reply to HMRC as its just the voluntary request from HMRC not the formal request. They will not provide any legal assistant.

    My accountant advising me to provide the info.
    I am not sure how to deal with this.
    Can some one help.

    Many Thanks.

    I think you should approach CH and present them with your accountant's view and see what they say.

    I have also received one of these (different scheme though) but mine had a deadline date to present the information to them by. My promoter (luckily and thankfully) has dealt with this on my behalf. If yours also has a deadline date, I personally wouldn't recommend ignoring it !!!

    Hi, Thanks for your reply.
    I have told CH what my accountant says but he still thinks that I dont need to reply HMRC until the formal request.
    I am bit worried at not replying to HMRC because CH is not going to support me legally if HMRC takes me to the court.

    Yes, I have a deadline too. what did your promoter do?
    Did he reply to HMRC on your behalf or waited for Formal request.

    They requested additional time from HMRC direct and are now dealing with it on my behalf, along with others in the same boat.

    It is NEVER - under any circumstances - sensible to ignore a request from HMRC especially if accompanies by a deadline. At the very least this could lead to increased penalty for non cooperation.

    If you have a formal 9A enquiry notice, HMRC is ENTITLED to ask for information. There are limits to what they can ask for. IN short it's anything that helps them establish you tax liability.

    That would normally EXCLUDE information such as bank accounts, credit card statements etc.

    If you are in any doubt about replying I would say do so, supplying the information to hand that is directly about the scheme (sign up papers, receipts or other documents accompanying payments, etc) and ask HMRC to explain why they want anything else.

    Default Just got Cold-Called by Winchester. Don't fancy it.

    HMRC have demonstrated their ability to introspectively declare schemes exploiting loopholes in legislation as illegal and pursue you for money owed. It sounds very risky.
