    If there are enquiries open and they have issued closure notices the tax years will show monies owing for those tax years. If you have enquiries open but no closure notices then the portal will not show you this.

    Discovery enquiry and closure.

    Sorry I know you have posted loads on this!

    If a Discovery is opened do they still need to send an formal "opening enquiry" letter before they can send a closure notice?

    So I read this (from DR) but not sure if it's different if they open a discovery.

    "For each year you were in the scheme, HMRC should have sent
    you:
    1) a letter opening an enquiry
    2) a Closure Notice (CN)

    CNs are only valid if they apply to a year you were actually in the scheme and HMRC opened an enquiry for that year.

    Likewise for APNs."

    When I look in the portal I can see each tax year. But there is no indication that I have any tax years open? However I have got an enquiry for two of the years. Those years look like all the other years except the numbers are slightly different.

    A bit frustrating as I would like to know if the other 2 years have enquiries but I don't want to ask HMRC directly. Any ideas?

    the underlying assumption from HMRC appears to be that the loans constitute profit from a self employed activity. Really?

    Confused a bit by this. Loans?
    S58 applies to Family Trust benefits. Does this Class 4 distinction described apply to the S58 retro victims?

    NB: to get to the information on your tax years and debts:

    "Your HMRC Services"
    "Services you can use -> Activate or access online services"
    "Self Assesment" -> Access Service
    "View Account"
    "Tax Years"

    Then select whichever horrible year you like

    Catching up a bit here as the day job is becoming more important now that I'm self employed.

    Class 4 NIC included in the various notices is a tricky one. Class 4 relates to profits from self employment. key words there "profits" and "self employment".

    the underlying assumption from HMRC appears to be that the loans constitute profit from a self employed activity. Really?

    If they think you're self employed then you can claim expenditure. The gross income is not subject to NI.

    If the core argument is that the loan is disguised employment income, there should be no Class 4 NIC.

    HMRC can't have their cake and eat it on this one.

    Challenge the assumption and use it as grounds for a representation on the APN. Wait until about a week before it's due and send a letter.

    (Happy to draft something if required - caveat though - I would like to see some data in exchange - no fee).

    If you're contacting HMRC and asking then to prove that they have issued notices, do it in a letter that is sent registered post and give them a deadline to respond by - normally 30 days.

    Discovery is a tricky subject. A lot will turn on what HMRC was told and how. I'll have a think about doing a simplified note on this 9as I'm doing something similar for a fee paying client). Do NOT assume that putting the DOTAS SRN on your return protects you from discovery. It may do but it may not. The question is referred to in a couple of recent cases still going through the system but no proper answer yet.

    Found it, but not the bit where it says when the notices were supposedly sent?

    Where on the portal??

    I log onto my portal and I remember it used to be there. But now I don't see anything. What section is it all under - the wonderful debt and details about when you received the noticves from HMRC? Step by step guide would be great.

    PS: I presume I am in the right portal.

    Your account | The Online Government Gateway account that you use to access HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) Online Services has the following contact details:

    Then lists your full name and Email address???

    Getting a copy of all letters from HMRC

    Hi Guys

    What is the best way to get a copy of all of the correspondence HMRC has sent you in relation to the years they have queries on?

    Can you do it over the phone, email or do you have to write?

    Can somebody please let me know the best way.

    Thanks

    Patbikeruk

    This thread is getting ridiculously long. It needs a new thread - with most salient points(like contacting MP, getting CTD, potted history) in the first post.
