Taxing

Post by lucy the tudor »

Just filed my tax return on line, after fretting about it and thinking I was really clever and trying to do it last week ( before the deadline) and then finding I needed them to send me two piecse of post with meaningless codes on in order to register to do it, and then worrying, and going into and out of the site lots of times by mistake when I tried to ask it questions, then struggling with my flamin' printer (again)...





YIPPPEEEEEEEEEE, finished it!!!!


Now I will get next one done without leaving it to the last minute, yeah, right.

If anyone else hasn't done it yet, you have until tomorrow.

But then I think you're all a little better organised :oops: :D

I did mine on line three times last week, as I could find nothing that told me what my allowances were this year. Finally gave up and filed the return, only to find that they owe me this year!! (Under a tenner, but that's preferable to me owing them, ain't it!)

Marvelous, isn't it great being soooo low earning?

I dream of one day having to pay tax.

:wink:

Tried to do ours online, it did not like us :(

Found a easier way.

Take all your figures down the the Inland Revenue office say 'ug'

They work it out fill in the forms and all done so they cant moan at you.

They keep reccomending an accountant to do it, i simply say its your job.

I keep being told to get an accountant - I pay less to the Revenue than I'd pay an accountant. And as you say, I can always take it down the road to my local, very helpful tax office, and yell, quietly, for help.

I had to fill out a second paper form after they lost the first one and then was told via a letter that i had not sent any forms and i would have to do it online as the date for paper had passed!

For my accounts’ the paper form is so much quicker but i think they want everyone to do it online. Took me ages! :evil:

!!****!!!!!*****!!!!!***Splutter splutter and other naughty words.

I crept over a step (I knew nothing about) by a couple of hundred pounds and joined the big boys and got whammed for Class 4 stamps (National Insurance to you Spring Chickens) and asked to pay next year's projected tax as well as this years. I was not amused. There were tears in my eyes and my pips sqeaked. I wouldn't have minded if I had not just been celebrating the fact that at last I was earning a minimum wage!!!!!!!!

To cheer myself up I have just flow to Chile and shopped till I dropped in the Artesan markets just to keep you lot and my Little Chile customers happy.
Can I put the £1000 air flight down as a business expense?
Will the tax man wear it? :?

For my friends who knew why I was really going - the wedding was lovely and when I've got over my jet lag I'll post some photos.

Fraid the Annie stuff is quite boring. The Little Chile stuff has first dibs on fun.
I raided the lace market in Santiago for the Cavaliers and Victorians.
I did have a long talk in very slow, hesitant and no doubt wacky Spanish with an old guy sitting on the pavement carving wooden spoons. Of course I bought some off him and he gave me one free and shook my hand as if there was no tomorrow, I don't know if I have the heart to sell it. I'm getting soft in my old age!
I also made some other old guy's day (a Mapuche Indian) (even the Aztecs had a hard time with them!) by buying all his wooden needles. I'm not quite sure what you lot might want them for but someone will come up with a good idea. They were originally for sewing up llama wool jumpers......
