What was the problem?


A PAYE Compliance Review commenced in June 2009 lasting 2 years. HMRC were largely happy with the payroll records, but concerned about the reimbursed mileage costs paid to salesmen. HMRC said that the expenses should have been taxed, which would have given rise to a liability of circa £50,000.


How did we solve it?


The position was defended through FSB's tax protection service and following a review by a Technical Specialist, HMRC conceded that their interpretation was incorrect.

  • The review lasted 2 years.
  • The cost for defending the member was £3,800.
  • There was no additional liability.
