    Default HMRC will accept IVAs and CVAs

    It is possible to do IVAs for contractors rather than a full-blown bankruptcy. The fear of HMRC is often more than the reality

    To be honest I havent been following much around the loan charge issues as it hasnt affected me (I give credit to this forum for that)
    came across an article today that said there have been 7 suicides linked to HMRC hitting people with the loan charge.
    Started to read more into it, really sad to hear and from what the article says, the way HMRC have been acting is disgusting

    Just wanted to say good luck to all those having to go through it. Keep your chin up and I hope it works out.
    As the OP says, dont suffer in silence. Speak to someone, whether its friends, family or a professional.

    And if it’s not HMRC it’s bottom-feeding, low-life solicitors.

    Very true as general advice, cojak. I'm a newbie to this forum - but not to being an 'equine contractor' - as a rider and trainer, then an employer of riders and a breeder and seller of Irish Draughts. And - of course - handling 'contractors' - every sort from a LOUSY roofer - to a great haylage supplier etc.

    Before Christmas (2019) I was driven to actually write to my MP in the forlorn hope he might help me with a problem that was interfering with almost everything I tried to do: a Temporary - but wrong - National Insurance number. I was facing fine's: on 3 Accounts with HMRC - for late tax assessments. Of course, I had never had to do these before - my late husband always took 'control'

    But just yesterday, I received e-mail from that MP (Philip Dunne) and a letter from a Complaints Manager at HMRC. The problem he was dealing with was simple AND crazy. Because of the wrong NI Number, I didn't exist: as a taxpayer, as an Employer, or as 70 year old woman that had applied for a pension I'd been 'buying' for about 27 years! Didn't stop HMRC taking tax, NI etc from me for all that time, of course - but now that I need to give them more money, no way will they help. I have jumped through all their hoops, many times, to no avail. I have tried to get support/help from them - it doesn't exist!

    So what happens next? If I don't pay my fines, will they have me arrested? It will cost more to keep me in prison, I think!! Does my MP (Philip Dunne) actually give a damn, ? I have seen no evidence of that until yesterday. A bit like winning the lottery! He told my MP: “I will be writing to her today to confirm that the Late Filing Penalties have been cancelled, and to offer any further assistance that she may need, during what I appreciate is a very difficult time for her.” (yep - just a bit!) The letter was a grovelling apology for their errors - even the promise the deptartment would refund £50 as compensation for their ‘errors’. Whether it means I might get a pension before I get to 80 is anyone's guess. Fortunately, thanks to two private pensions, success is no big deal - poverty isn't one of my problems with HMRC - and not least that my late husband sold his part of a successful IT networking company to Capita! And since I found out just how many Government services are provided my that Mega-Contractor - and how many they make a mess of, it has been very horrifying to find out how much Capita makes from those contractors, how badly it handles most of them, and how many parts of everyones lives that are 'interfered' with in the process. Everyone - including illegal immigrants; TV licence holders, HMRC 'victims, A-levels: Heads warn of 'unfair' grades for students - BBC News - even Army recruitment, fall under the grip of their 'services'! There is even a website hosting some excellent articles about Crapita - and for a while I thought I had named the company that!

    I've rambled on more than enough, I think. Of course, the problem with my 'contracting' now is that I had an x-ray of my thoracic spine on Tuesday and discovered I have a stress fracture of my spine: of course, the NHS is a 'victim of Crapita too!
