Re: HMRC not fit for purpose 3

Thanks for your replies.

Tax was for the last month of 18/19 and P45 from gap year job was handed over.

My point of posting was however to flag the dire telephone service HMRC can sometimes offer the public.

Re: NRCGT return

I suggested she call HMRC and ask them to issue a tax refund. This is her experience so far: Wednesday-held for 5 minutes then told HMRC are too busy to take h...

Re: NRCGT return

I believe that the earth is round and that man has landed on the moon. Good, we have some common ground. I don't subscribe to conspiracy theories, and even if I did, I would not accept that this issue (and you) were important enough to cause a cover up. To be clear, are you stating it is not import...

Re: Determing residency status before 2015

If you spent fewer than 16 midnights in the UK during 2013/14 and 2014/15 you will qualify as non-UK resident for those two tax years. If you spent more time in the UK, further analysis will be required to determine your status.
