Errors iin request for repayment lead to fine

A man has been fined by HMRC after trying to reclaim £3,000 in overpaid tax,
The
Telegraph
reports this morning.

The self employed man, who was unnamed in reports, was deemed to have
miscalculated the sum, which HMRC worked out as just £1,000, so was then fined
£1,400 for his the mistake.

The Telegraph quotes the man’s lawyer, Phil Berwick of McGrigors, saying the
fine was “outrageous” because the man had made an honest mistake.
