  • I’m no business owner - self assessment payment

    Hello, Re: Missed Self Assessment payment £12633.61 I received a letter from HMRC today that says “Our records show that we haven’t received payment for the Self Assessment amount overdue”. This clearly a mistake because I submitted my tax self assessment in November 2021. So, I called 0300 200 3823 and waited for over 1 hour only to get disconnected at 6pm. I then logged into my online HMRC account and my account shows that I did get indeed submitted my tax self assessment in November 2021. Being curious about the whole situation, I noticed that there is a Business tax tab on the page. I click on it and lo and behold: It shows why HMRC sent this letter. Question: 1) What’s this about? I am not a business owner and never own a business. Not even renting a property, being a sole trader, etc. as explained on the HMRC help & contact page. 2) What do I need do get this mistake corrected? Kind regards, Eric
