Taken from Ken frost's excellent site You must be logged in to see this link.

You know that the government is strapped for cash when the rules of the game are charged wrt tax reclaims.

New rules introduced by HMRC, effective from April 2009, will mean that even if a business wins a claim in a VAT Tribunal for overcharging it may not be able to reclaim its legal and accountancy costs from HMRC, unless it can prove that HMRC has acted unreasonably.

Proving that HMRC acted "unreasonably" will be tough.

This effectively means that small firms will not bother to try to reclaim overpayments, unless they are excessive.

Is this fair that small firms are being disadvantaged in this manner?

No.

However, small firms are easy targets; especially when a government is broke.


We at Tax Credit casualties are all to aware of HMRC going for easy targets!!

"The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible
reductions. In this way the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed."

Well, the worms are certainly turning! Easy targets? Not any more! Please let's all spread the word that tax credit overpayments can be FOUGHT and a write-off won! People are only allowing themselves to be bullied because they feel helpless and don't know any differently regarding their rights and ability to dispute - because HMRC refuses to tell us!

We now have the Lib Dems on our side!

Do have a look at the Lib Dems' 5-point plan and our response.
