How We Saved A Contractor From A Nasty Fine
We were recently contacted by a construction contractor who had been issued a fine from HMRC because of their taxes. As our client worked within the construction industry, they were quite often away from home. As such, they were not aware of the fines against them immediately and were slightly confused at how the fines were incurred.
They contacted us and explained their side of the story. The first thing we asked for was their payroll over the previous 12 months, just to make sure everything had been filed correctly.
Sure-enough, we couldn’t find any faults within their payroll and came to the conclusion that a mistake had been made.
Within just a few weeks, our client contacted us again with the good news. They had received a new letter from HMRC which stated that they would be dropping the fine against them.
This created a huge relief on our client’s behalf and they once again felt confident to carry on with their Contractor business.
