Hi all,

I've agreed to settle my 2-year Norris scheme (2013-15) with HMRC. Since I filled the original CLS form in 2018 my situation has changed, and they've asked for another income & expenditure form to be filled in.

This one is really, really intrusive - it asks for things that I don't believe relevant:

* Partner's income (even though it's my frickin' 'debt' pre-marriage!)
* Bank balances (savings and current)
* Vehicle registration numbers for assets!?

I've already offered about 30% lump sum up front.

Has anyone else filled one of these in? Are HMRC trying to cover themselves to make sure even a minimal payment can be afforded - or are they trying it on?

Does omitting things make a difference provided an explanation if given?
