2010 saw HMRC in a high profile exercise to gain more tax from individuals in the PAYE system.
There is evidence of assessments now being raised by them in order to claw back tax which the PAYE system hasn’t managed to collect.
If you receive a bill now, then a couple of checks are relevant:-
1) Is the assessment correct, based on your actual income and reliefs for the tax year in question
2) Is it possible for a review to be requested under ESC A19, that HMRC acted on information too late
We dealt with a case recently where HMRC acted late on receipt of form P46 from the individual’s employer.
