A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO ADVISING ON TAX CREDITS, INCLUDING OVERPAYMENTS An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you’re a tax adviser, or possibly a family law practitioner dealing with clients plagued by tax problems, you should acquire this book, recently published by Spiramus. Distinguished by its accuracy, completeness and straightforward language, this is an excellent work of reference would also be more than useful to the general reader keen to understand more about how tax credits work… how to claim… and who is entitled to claim in the first place. In case you didn’t know or need reminding, LITRG is the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group, described here as ‘an initiative of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) to give a voice to the unrepresented.’ Tax credits have not been without controversy and although the UK Coalition government apparently aims to set out a new approach to welfare provision within the next five years, several million families still claim tax credits. All of which mainly explains why numerous tax and welfare advisers have had to acquire an understanding of tax credits in order to advise their clients appropriately. This book therefore aims to explain clearly, yet in detail, the law and practice of tax credits, for the benefit both of tax specialists and welfare advisers. Within its approximately 350 pages, the book covers the full spectrum of issues pertaining to tax credits, from the history of rules and concepts – relevant ones that is – to the vexed area of overpayments. Speaking of which, if you check out Appendix 4 you can read the full text of the HMRC leaflet on overpayments. ‘An overpayment means we’ve paid you more money than you’re entitled to…’ it begins cheerily, before going on for another ten or so pages, about the ramifications and procedures. Small wonder, then, that the powers that be in these matters have been criticized of a number of things, including ‘poor administration’. All pertinent commentary on tax credits, including working tax credit and child tax credit is included in this useful text. The section on overpayments just mentioned comprises two chapters which explain why overpayments might occur, how to avoid them and how to challenge them. There is considerable emphasis on rights and remedies available to claimants confronted with wrong decisions. (The aforementioned leaflet is, after all, about how to deal with the HMRC’s wrong decisions). There’s further useful advice on how to conduct appeals, disputes and complaints, plus commentary on how an adviser should deal with HMRC, based on the experience of the authors. In line with the aims of this publishing house, this is a practical and professional publication which no tax specialist or welfare adviser should be without. The book is stated to be up to date as at 1 June 2012, with further updates available on the relevant websites.
