        To be fair he can ignore the self-assessment part. That is just an optional guide.
        So the direct answer is "yes you can".

        It took me longer to find the letter from the pile the wife out it in than it did to complete the exemption form. And the SA form was only a bit longer as I tried lots of options to see what it was asking.

          I remember when PAYE required a nil return form to be submitted when you didn't have anything to pay in a particular period, and I could never find the bloody thing either.

            I just got one too, thought it was a scam first off. Who else laughed to find the scum in the house of commons exempted themselves from it? So typical of this hell hole country.

            Did the self assessment the last question is the important one.

            Do you only process personal data for:
            • Staff administration (including payroll);

              You only hold the personal information of the people you need to for your staff administration.
            • accounts or records (ie invoices and payments);

              You only hold the personal information of the people you need to for your own accounts and records – for example information about past, existing or present customers or suppliers.

              The information is restricted to what is necessary for your accounts and records – for example name, address and credit card details. However, this doesn't include information processed by or obtained from credit reference agencies.
            • advertising, marketing and public relations (in connection with your own business activity).

              You only hold the personal information of the people you need to for your own advertising, marketing and public relations – for example information about past, existing or present customers or suppliers

              The information is restricted to what is necessary for your advertising, marketing and public relations – for example, names, addresses and other identifiers

              You only advertise and market your own goods and services


            Which I think we can all answer YES to which means exempt.

                It proves absolutely nothing.

                  If you've determined that the business is exempt, do you need to register that anywhere? Will they send a similar letter in the post every year?

                    Did you read the previous posts? In the letter (turn it over) they give a link to register your exemption. I would expect a periodic reminder to revalidate because, strangely enough, businesses can and do change over time and your responsibilities will also change over time. Much like you have to periodically tell the pension regulator you're exempt from the auto opt-in thingy.

                      Thanks! I missed that post and my accountant only sent a scan of the front side of the letter.
