    In theory, HMRC could bankrupt you over the loan charge and then, at some later date, pursue you for those open tax years.

    Do you follow?

    a) has opened an enquiry or

    Thanks again Stonehenge.

    I am aware of this, and Its a minimum wage job for me from January 2020 on (or when they do me)...... push trolleys around a super market car park or something in future and offer them £10 per month until I drop of this mortal coil?

    This whole saga has made me re-think life a little; I am just sick of working hard for nothing, the commute into London, long hours, the stress, the VAT, Accountants fees, business insurances, Corporation Tax and all the grief from trying to earn as a contractor with a Ltd company. As I say, I don't know if it is a good idea but I am in despair with it all and they cant take what I don't have, not now in settling and not in the future when they come knocking?

    I am also an awkward 'so and so', it may be bad for me in future, but I do feel a little 'morally smug' not signing up and settling with them..... as a bit of last act of defiance before being skint for the rest of my life

    No problem.

    Are you intending to comply with the loan charge, ie. provide the loan info by 30 Sept and then declare them on your 2018/19 self-assessment?

    Even if you don't comply, and they eventually catch up with you and slap you with penalties, it won't make much difference if you haven't got any money. Btw, I'm not advocating that you do this but I wouldn't blame you if you did.

    Sorry to hear of your troubles.

    Perhaps writing to your local member of parliament?
    It might be worth seeking some support, if nothing to demonstrably show it is causing you distress and sleepless nights. The GP, if you can get an appointment and or LCAG?

    I cannot see the difference between slavery in the traditional sense or that by which you have stated in your post.

    It may be worth some publicity via the LCAG.
    HMRC while they profess not wanting to pursue bankruptcy, this itself is a fallacy given this http://financeandtax.decisions.tribu...92/TC07029.pdf

    If wanting to be even more inflammatory, why not sincerely offer HMRC a live organ donation... that literally is the only asset you have that has any monetary value.

    I don't follow - surely if you end up paying the LC it will be on all open & closed years. All loans added and taxed. How can they then come back for the OPEN years??

    Yes but he/she hasn't got any money. When HMRC issue a demand for the LC, he/she won't be able to pay. The only action available to HMRC would be to petition for bankruptcy.

    Any open years would still remain open.

    As I said, in theory, HMRC could bankrupt someone over the LC and then come back several years later to pursue the open years. Personally, I think it's very unlikely they would do that but there is a theoretical risk.

    PS. paying the LC doesn't close open years

    Oh I see - However, in my case APNs already exhorted will cover the open years

    No, ALL open years still have the underlying tax dispute to resolve. Your APN’s paid will have been minus any interest. Should HMRC eventually pursue and defeat your open years in court at a later date, they WILL come back for the interest on those open years.

    Talking Thanks All....

    Thank you to all for the replies and input.

    My plan:

    1. No settlement
    2. Wait for LC to be imposed
    3. Do nothing until January 2020
    4. Let them spend tax payers money coming after me for money I don’t have.
    5. Let contract wind down.
    6. Get minimum pay crap job, or go on Job Seekers Allowence.
    7. Deprive HMRC and the government of the Vat/Corporation Tax and suchlike I pay because I will no longer be contracting with my own LTD company.
    8. Because I will be on the minimum wage or Jobseekers, I will offer them £10 per month.
    9. Get the HMRC to cover my NI etc, etc, etc.....

    Well done Mel Stride and his cronies at HMRC, I will cost you, you will get nothing but a very small token from me and I may end up being a burden on the state!

    Swigging cheap cider and watching Jeremy Kyle in my social housing beckons..... what a winning policy all round from the authorities that will force me to do this!

    As I said, I would rather do time than buckle, give in and submit to this lot.

    On the plus side, if I did end up in ‘chokey’ I would have a roof over my head, 3 meals a day, no bills and as much sex as I can handle!!!!

    Cheers folks!
