Are you in a pickle with HMRC? If so, I certainly won’t judge you, but I would like to help. We can’t all be good at everything. I’ve always been pretty good with numbers and am great at staying on top of paperwork and administration, however I’m a hopeless driver and I have no sense of direction at all, so If you’re good at these, things then I’m in awe of you.
It can’t be nice knowing that you’ve been fined by HMRC, and once they start adding interest and further penalties, the balance owed (and your stress levels) can go through the roof! The worst thing you can do is bury your head in the sand as things can only get worse.
I Have an Agent’s account with HMRC and can speak to one of their advisers on your behalf. I’ve known them to be quite forgiving (honestly), especially if hold your hand up and say “I went wrong, but I want to put it right now and stay compliant in the future”. HMRC will respect you for trying to sort things out, and they’ll help by agreeing to a payment plan that you can afford. They might even waive a portion of the penalties, depending on your circumstances, and you’ll certainly stop the fines accruing even further.
Call me on 01803 363089 to speak in confidence about your situation. We can get things sorted I promise, and I can help you to stay on the right side of HMRC in the future by putting in place the support you need. The Torbay Bookkeeping Practice is here for you, and initial consultations are free of charge, strictly confidential and without further obligation.
