HM Revenue & Customs

Do not change ESC A19

    1. Petition by

      Keith Gordon

      London, United Kingdom

HMRC’s proposal to “clarify” ESC A19 is misconceived and misleading. The present wording is perfectly clear and HMRC should revert to their former practice of respecting it. HMRC’s proposal is merely a fig leaf, designed to legitimise their recent practice of denying ESC A19 to the very individuals for whom it was intended to apply.

      because it is particularly unfair to unrepresented taxpayers, or those without a detailed understanding of their notice of coding, and removes their final line of defence to unconscionable collection (i.e. where HMRC knows full well they either had all the relevant information, or are trying to colelct tax which simply is not due).

      HMRC are failing PAYE customers time after time, they are now trying to take away the one concession that gives the customer some chance of recompense, instead of cleaning up their act and trying to get the system working properly.

      Because this most often impacts older people who do not fully understand the system and who can ill afford to pay the additional tax.

      HMRC need to hold their hands up and take responsibility for their mistakes, as they expect taxpayers to do.

      It is important that HMRC respect their own guidance and do not deceive those who are not qualified to know whether or not their tax code is correct.
