Tax Debt Questions? We are here to offer free advice and help in any way we can.

I don’t think a day goes by without us receiving calls from clients who have a variety of tax debt questions relating to tax arrears, due dates for HMRC payments and general enquiries and issues around tax and dealing with HMRC.

Feeling like you can freely ask us questions is important to us as a company; we are here to answer your tax debt questions and much more. Feel free to pop on our website for a live chat or use the contact details provided in this article for a friendly chat anytime.

It’s good to remember sometimes that you are not alone and that all of us, including larger companies can find themselves in a position where they are unable to pay tax on time. This leaves them with unanswered tax debt questions, worries who to speak to and more importantly, how to get those important questions answered and solve the problem they may be facing.

According to Government statistics, there are 5,200,000 small to medium enterprises operating in the UK, employing some 25,200,000 people. As of March 2015 there was 13 billion outstanding to HMRC – So we are not alone. This total doesn’t include what HMRC refer to as aged debt which is £4 billion too!

Many of us have sleepless nights worrying about bankruptcy or legal action, even losing our homes and business owing to being in debt, especially with HMRC.

The most common tax debt questions we get asked are:

• Can you help with a tax debt I have? We have every possible type of tax being asked about.

• My company is struggling to pay a Corporation / VAT / PAYE (etc) tax bill; can anything be done to stop HMRC taking this further?

• HMRC have sent someone to my door for an unpaid tax bill, can you help?

• I’ve had a letter off HMRC; I didn’t even know I owed them a tax debt, what can be done?

• I’m Self-Employed and can’t pay my tax bill, can anything be done? I have spoken to HMRC and they didn’t even want to help!

The answer to all of the above is simply YES, we can help and we are happy to chat over everything with you.

We will help guide you through this process and explain where HMRC may be up to and how long we feel you may have before things escalate. We will answer all of your tax debt questions and ensure you understand fully HMRC’s tax collection procedures. More importantly, we will help you assess a suitable option, keeping everything concise and clear for you.

The worst thing to do is ignore this matter. Your situation may not be as bad as you think but as always, time is of the essence – Seek advice from your accountant / business advisor or a 3rd party as soon as possible. If you don’t act, you increase the risk of legal action being taken against you and your business.

More than likely you will be aware that you owe to HMRC either from your accountant or you may have received a letter from HM Revenue and Customs, stating what you owe and to what form of tax.

Many such letters are now being sent out to people just like me and you. You may not have had any earlier contact off HMRC either so a letter through the post can be a nasty surprise. If this leaves you with unanswered tax debt questions or any queries in general, we are here to help.

However, don’t ignore letters like this, HMRC will continue to pursue the debt even if you don’t hear off them again – Legal recovery action starts quickly and escalates just as fast. Quite often a quick response can help solve the situation all round.
