  • RE: Late Self Assessment penalty but never been self employed.

    Dear Sir/Madam I am writing in reference to my self assessment return. I have last filled my self assessment form on 23/06/2019. Immediately after that, I filled out the ‘Cease Trading’ form to notify I have stopped trading as I closed my business due to the change in my personal circumstance . I had informed the local authority and where I used to trade as well After this period, I was constantly seeking employment since I closed my business. I changed few employment and I stopped my employment in Feb 2020 and pandemic striked due to which I was unemployed for months . I was back in employment from July 2020 and currently working . Yesterday, for some reason I tried to log in my account and saw there are numerous messages . I am shocked to see there are penalty notices and has added upto £1600 plus! I am not sure why I am receiving this messages when I have notified HMRC I have ceased trading and I was no longer self employed I am in lot of stress , please help!
