Forum: HMRC Scheme Enquiries

For discussions relating to enquiry letters being sent out by HMRC.

  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: BIG GROUP

    Mod edit: Joining instructions. This started elsewhere but should be on its own. I have two takers so far. To clarify this BIG GROUP is ONE GROUP across ALL schemes. It does not impact action individuals may wish to take on their own or via other groups.

  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: HMRC Enquiry letters on Loans from EBT and other schemes

    If you have generic questions regarding HMRC enquiries, this is the thread for you. If you have questions about your own enquiry or want to make contact with others who have used your loan scheme provider, look for the thread in this sub-forum. The first thing to point out, however: WE ARE NOT...

  4. Sticky Thread Sticky: Discovery assessment season - unexpected bills from HMRC

    The threads are filling up with stories of unexpected bills arriving from HMRC. Whilst there is no substitute for getting proper advice that suits your own circumstances, the following general description may help reduce the shock. However if you have an accountant - ask her/him for help. If...

  5. Sticky Thread Sticky: Disappearing loans?

    It's a common feature of these threads that lenders have become difficult to find and engage with. We have recently had some experience in this arena. In most schemes that used loans, certainly until 2011, loans were advanced by the company acting as trustee for a trust. In some cases, the...

  1. APN, Judicial Review, HMRC collection activity

    We've become aware that HMRC has been contacting members of certain schemes who received an APN and subsequently joined a Judicial Review. The terms of the JR included a claim for hardship and in most instances we've seen, HMRC has agreed not to press for payment until the JR decision has been...

Whilst I'd prefer not hand over a wad of cash, I would really like this to be over and done with. They have confirmed that IHT is not currently due based...

  6. APNs - notifiable under DOTAS

    The main grounds for HMRC issuing an APN is that a scheme was notifiable. Don't assume that just because a promoter notified the scheme, and HMRC issued a scheme reference number (SRN), that the scheme was in fact notifiable. It may seem like a subtle distinction but HMRC are now having to...

  9. COP 8 and section 9A = not the same?

    I'm running a bit of a survey. From perhaps mid 2005 to early 2008 it appears that some HMRC template letters allegedly opening enquiries said something like " I intend to enquire into year 20xx/xx, relating to your scheme xxxx. Please see attached COP8" No mention of the legal statute...

  11. Montpelier's LoR for "scheme not notifiable"

    Below is all they put in the letter. It forced HMRC to carry out a review, which took 6 months. Obviously it did the trick. :smile But, even if it hadn't been successful, it would have made HMRC justify why the scheme was notifiable, and bought time. :wink In another case we've come...

    In the past week, users of the scheme, targeted by the retrospective legislation BN66/section 58, have started receiving letters from HMRC withdrawing their APNs. HMRC have now concluded that the scheme was not a notifiable arrangement under DOTAS and therefore none of the users should ever have...

    It was widely expected and unsurprising but HMRC is preparing to issue a wave of discovery assessments for 2011/12 before the cut off on 5th April 2016. These will take in all those "schemes" that operated in that year, the majority of which were not DOTAS declared. It remains to be seen how...
