    Default Letter from HMRC

    Mr Gonzo

    This notice requires you, by law, to make a return of your taxable income and capital gains, and any documents requested, for the year from 6 April 2011 to 5 April 2012.
    FFS

    I have been out of the UK for three complete tax years and not set foot in the UK once in that time. I have no income that is taxable in the UK. My limited company was dissolved yonks ago.

    I owe zero to HMRC, unless I don't return the damn form by the end of October in which case they will charge me 100 quid.

    Did you fill in the P-whatever to let them know you've left the country? Are they sending this to a foreign address? An email/call will probably get them to get over it.

    Call them up, resist the temptation to tell the to **** off, and explain that you have no uk assets, no uk derived income, and therefore have no tax liability whatsoever. That's what I did and haven't received a tax return in years.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

    Form P85 - yes, did that at the time.

    Yes, they are sending the tax return to an overseas address.


    At least they have included the residence pages in the form that they send me (they did that last year too).

    They will get the form back with a whole load of zeros on it.

    +1. If you keep filling it in the computer will probably keep sending them.

    They have included an insert with a phone number to call if I think that I don't have to do a self-assessment return.

    I was tempted to call them but then there is always a voice inside my head saying

    You don't want to draw any attention to yourself until six years have passed safely by.

    I think you're being overly cautious but your call

    Call the number, and sort it out. Putting 0's in is more likely to draw attention yourself as that might get flagged as being unusual, which might trigger an investigation. If you call the "bird" in admin she's more likely to deal with your P85 in a routine manner.

    Send them a cheque for 1p. That'll probably throw them off the scent for years!
