Re: HMRC Requests for Documents

Hi wamstax, They already have copies of my sea service book and, in some cases, extracts from the ship's log. Extracts, not the entire log, are usually all that is needed, though I was once asked to provide the Draught of Water and Freeboard Log - only one page fortunately. I have the impression tha...

Re: HMRC Requests for Documents

Many thanks to pawncob and msp.
I thought the request seemed unreasonable!
I think I will do as you advise and ask the company (if I can find an address for them!) for a one page summary of the work they did in the tax year and take it from there.
Thanks again.

HMRC Requests for Documents

I work on ships and am undergoing a "check" at the moment. HMRC have asked for 2 specific sets of documents to be provided (by the shipping company). One is all the ship's logs for the period (72 pages of A3). I think this is so they can check when the ship was in UK waters. The other is all the dai...

I am PAYE and HMRC enquired into my 05-06 return. I sent the documents asked for but they found discrepancies and are now asking about 03-04 and 04-05. They want payslips and other records from that time. I thought I only had to keep records for 2 years. What is the position please?

<t>About a year ago I phoned HMRC capital taxes on 0131 777 4343 with an identical query. I was told by the helpful official that my parent was considered to be the beneficial owner and would get the PPR uplift on death. I did tell her that we have a Trust document but got the impression that that i...

<t>Vicki, I am not an expert, but have asked the IR about a similar case and they said a beneficial owner gets the PPR uplift. I have also been told by an IR Inspector that beneficial ownership, rather than legal ownership, is what counts when assessing CGT. IR 294, page 4 para 3 might cover your ci...

Thanks Simon.
I'll put it in on my employment pages.
As an employee I do claim Seafarer's Relief most years. I just thought it was odd for an employee to be paid gross and wondered if I would be liable for both the employer's and the employee's compulsory NI contributions.
