  • RE: HMRC not answering phones, 3rd day and cannot get through to speak on their help line

    I have been fined £100 for a late Self Assessment despite de-registering a Self Employed last year and calling you to check I didn’t owe anything, as I was still receiving emails and messages chasing me. I was told explicitly that I did not need to submit a tax return. I have now been told I have been charged £100 and £10 daily. I have tried calling almost every day, I just get hung up on. Try and speak to someone on online chat, I just get shut down. The instructions to appeal are incredibly confusing and I don’t want to appeal, I was told I did not need to submit a self assessment so it just needs to be cancelled. I am not paying these daily charges when you make it literally impossible to contact you. Absolute farce.
