For discussions relating to enquiry letters being sent out by HMRC.
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.
This thread will provide news and information on the ongoing dispute with HMRC over the Montpelier double tax scheme (BN66/s58). It may also be of interest to deGraaf and Steed users.
I will try and post an update every Friday morning, whether there is anything to report or not.
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...
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...
I now have such a beast and am trying to find a way to get it on a forum thread.

Thy were around from 2007 selling DTA schemes - did anyone else ever deal with them?
Yesterday I received an enquiry letter from HMRC regarding work through the Choice Premier / Berwick Associates scheme.
Has anyone else worked with these guys and/or received a letter?
If so, please get in touch... I would be very interested in working together on this.
HMRC can pick us off one by one. However, within a group, it is much harder.
I would be happy as f*** if all of this just went away, but it won't. It will drag on until such time as HMRC issue closure notices for the years in question.

Two FOI requests that may be of interest, and not just to Montpelier users.

I mentioned in another thread, I think it unwise to discuss some of the implications of tax measures in a public forum. Recent controversial moves to give potentially liable parties (providers) three years warning of liability may also have brought providers into this category as well?
