In January they wrote telling us the outcome and saying they would present all options by end of July (this brown envelope) - they also said 'you will be able to settle on the SAME figures as previously agreed'. So this particular brown envelope.. the normal tax and interest part of the settlement is the same as agreed... but they have bumped they IHT up by 2.5k which I assume is the conitnued build up of the 0.25% per quarter..... surely they cant do that since they said the previously agreed settlement figures were fixed until we had a chance to consider this latest letter?

    I had the same problem and wrote 2 complaint letters regarding my being charged for HMRC's incompetence in delaying my settlement. I had started my settlement in March 2019 and paused in Oct due to the review and the assurance my calculations would not be affected. Though both complaint have acknowledged my settlement was delayed (on HMRC's side), they have still not offered back the difference in 2019 and 2020 calculations of the IHT. They offered me monetary redress but I am not satisfied and am now taking my complaint up with the Adjucator's office. Even though I have fully settled now because I didn't want any further penalties, I will continue to chase this unfair recalculations and a refund, no matter how long it takes or how devalued the money may become. HMRC is unfair!!

    I’ve trawled through years worth of posts on here for days and countless google searches trying to get a definitive answer but clarity, there is none.

    It’s a hybrid of Alice in Wonderland and Kafka.

    I have written to Mary Aiston and complained, but not sure that will do anything. I keep getting a bigger and bigger settlement number each time they look at something
