    Yesterday i received a copy of Penalty Determination letter from my old accountant ( I dont have any accountant since Jan 2011). Not sure why HMRC sent it to him rather than me.

    I never received any end of year return reminders from HMRC. Now they have sent me £400 penalty. I filed P45 when i moved from contracting to a permanent role so i thought i dont have any file any more as there are no employees.. But again never received any reminders from HMRC advising that it is due. How should i proceed in writing an appeal ? Any help on that will be appreciated.

    This sounds like the fine for not filing the P35 which should have been filed by 19 May 2011. You say that you did not have an accountant then - so I guess that you must have forgotten to file it?

    I agree i might have forgotten about it but atleast i should get some sort of reminders from HMRC ?? Is that not right ? Apart from this penalty notice i never got any reminders about it being due ...

    No reminders need to sent as this is an annual requirement - so no excuses not to file there

    The fine increases by £100/month from 19th May and by now is something like £900 because it has continued to mount by £100 since your accountant was sent the penalty notice letter in September

    There is however some good news that I can give you, which is that if your PAYE for 2010/11 was fully paid up to date by 19th April 2011 the fine is reduced, by HMRC concession, to £100. Get your P35 and P14 in quickly in any case to avoid further argument.
