VAT, HMRC, and their employees Moe, Curly and Larry. [Dec. 21st, 2011|04:06 pm]

Letter from the VAT man to me, late September (paraphrased from memory):
    We have determined that you owe us £1,057.00 -- please pay up pronto, melonfarmer, or we'll haul your sorry ass into court.

Early October: *me pays*

Letter from the VAT man to me, mid December (quoted accurately but abridged):
    A routine audit of your VAT account has revealed that there is a credit of £1,057.00 for which, at present, there is no corresponding liabilty.
    Detals of the credit are as follows:
    ELECTRONIC PAYMENT 12/10/11 £1,057.00
    Please check your records and indicate, by ticking the appropriate box which of the following applies to the payment.
    1. I have submitted the remittance in error. Please return the payment. [ ]


There being no boxes to indicate "I submitted the remittance when you demanded the money with menaces you complete twonks", I will tick box one and return the letter.

I messed up my taxes a few years ago - completely my fault; I always work multiple part-time jobs and didn't get the UK tax system yet and handed the wrong form to the wrong company, or something - anyway, I checked the following year to see if they owed me money (they usually do) and they said 'you owe us £75' and I said 'fair cop' and they clawed it back through adjusting my tax code.

Then the year after THAT they gave it back as an overpayment in previous years.
