    Default WTT Consulting

    Hi,

    I have a request for information for a single tax yr using Endeavour... I am no longer resident in UK and my earnings are very limited. I am wondering if someone can PM me and let me know about WTT Consulting and your experience with them? Is it worth I spend 800+vat (this would have to be borrowed) for them to represent me for 12mths. Or I handle the case myself.

    Thanks in advance

    I haven't needed to use them yet, however Graham has been very helpful when I have approached him on here via PM.

    If you read through other posts on here, most would recommend them.

    Also, it will likely cost you more in the long run to handle things yourself.

    Thanks WalterWhite. From what I have read on the posts the view seems to be actually conflicted about WTT but perhaps I haven't read all the posts you have. The general consensus is Big Group are the ones to represent my particular case but they are no longer accepting new members. WTT are perhaps the best option til Big Group reopen membership, that is at least what I have ascertained. There seems to be some relationship between
    the two, including CCR group but I haven't actually been able to identify who CCR group actually are, all a bit mysterious.

    Would be great if you could clarify what you mean by 'costing me in the long-run'. You seem to be suggesting that handling my case through WTT could lead to a better outcome. You can PM me in response, if you like. I just have to be cautious as this fee is substantial given my current earnings, I will have to borrow, just want to ensure it is well spent or better spent on the inevitable taxes I may have to pay.

    Thank you for your time.

    I think WTT and Big Group are the same? I may be wrong though. I am sure Graham will be along to confirm

    As for costing you more, my assumption is you (like all of us) aren't experts in this field and therefore will not know the appropriate way to deal with HMRC's tactics

    Big Group is a collective to which WTT Consulting provide advisory services and logistics.
    There is no secret made about it, it's right there in the name www.wttbiggroup.co.uk

    Thanks Dotasscandal, that clears that up. Still not sure who CCR Group is but I'll table that for now.

    As Mr Scandal said, WTT Consulting advises WTT Big Group and provides logistical support.

    CCR Group is a member only group of users of the Network One, Quantum, Endeavour and Fairfax arrangements.

    WTT Consulting acts as a paid adviser to the group but doe snot provide logistical support.

    WTT Consulting is a specialist tax advisory firm. We have an in depth knowledge of contractor arrangements. We do not have any special relationship with HMRC, no route to achieving some sort of horse trading deal and no access that is peculiar to us which might force HMRC/HMG into a deal.

    We do have an idea we developed with Big Group (and as such belongs to them). That idea is being executed now and that is why the group is temporarily closed.

    We will reopen the group in April. We do NOT have a solid plan for settling the position post 6th April 2017. we have some ideas that we have hopes for but that is it for the moment.

    You need to think about what you wish to do in terms of the tax enquiry and be realistic about it.

    HMRC are not going to cut you a special deal.

    They will litigate matters and cases which have been few and far between until now will start appearing more frequently. Those may help or hinder. You will though need to keep abreast of them.

    There is new legislation, most importantly the 2019 charge. That may yet be amended to exclude some of the more controversial elements but it will (in my opinion) arrive and will be a line in the sand.

    You will have to make a judgement about whether WTT can help. I am hardly an unbiased commentator on this. Read the forum though and exchange views.

    Thanks webberg, I didn't expect any tax adviser to have a special relationship with HMRC... In regards to 2019 legislation I think that applies to loans from what I have ascertained and I don't think that my case falls into this criteria. I was with Endeavour for a total of 3mths and was issued dividends during that time. I will go with WTT in the hopes that their experience can at least help me avoid making mistakes. Thanks again.
