    You are a gentleman, it wasn't your comment I felt was snide it was the 'cool story bro' one... which I felt was a little uncalled for.

    Not sure what you mean?

    Those of us in the Contractor Loan settlement phase etc., were given until October 2020 to file, given permission by HMRC.

    So that was my filing deadline. HMRC then sent a late filing penalty...

    Late SA payment charges from HMRC

    Despite being given a deadline of October 2020 to file my return (DR/LC etc.)., HMRC still fined me for late filing and late payment.

    So I was supposed to file by Jan 31st 2020 but didn't even...

  9. Loans?

    At least you guys heard the words loans. No one ever said the word loans to me.... It was called trusts and beneficiaries and umbrellas.

    Was this still meant to be a post about recommending tax specialists?

    Seems to have gone off topic somewhat.

    I can highly recommend Gilbert Tax - I hope this helps someone.

    When I awoke from Lockdown

    I agree and from what EL said each SD has to be treated individually so they cannot act as a group for the SDs, for what is to come (or not).

    Also not everyone with ETC or EL have received them.

    ETC are not recommending the law firm to do anything :) that's not a good move. What the poster meant was ETC have recommended their clients involved in this to use the legal team at Elysium Law.

    You apply for the SD to be set aside and you have to do it at the court mentioned in the SD. Whether that means attending or your lawyer applying on your behalf I'm not sure.

    It can be used but the local court can 'set it aside' if there is a disputed debt.

    From the little I know it's a mixture... and even those with ETC (and the subsequent lawyers) who had agreed the mediation route got them. Some did not.
