Contractor paid 2500 GBP to HMRC for a tax mess up


We were recently doing a survey on SJD and Accessa Umbrella and came across a shocker!

Dave Garner MBCS, who seems to be a Project Manager was the one who commented on our question.

IT Professionals Forum UK is LinkedIn group with over 2200 members (mostly UK Contractors).




Our question to UK Contractors was:

Has anyone used Accessa Umbrella OR SJD Accountancy services? Can you please share your experiences with us

and we received 3 comments on it.

Everything was fine until Dujon Walsham's comment, an Infrastructure Architect working with UBS Investment Bank wrote, "ive used SJD I recommend them they are very good".

What came after Dujon's comment raised our eyebrows.

Dave Garner MBCS who happens to be a Project Manager wrote in his reply to Dujon's comment that, "Used them for a while and two years later got a letter from HMRC as they allegedly messed up my TAX return and I ended up paying £2500 plus a fine for submitting an incorrect tax return! Found I was doing stuff they should be doing so went to a local accountant about same costs and got a better service and 1:1 sessions which I didn't get with SJD as they are remote."

For now, if you are a Contractor in the UK and need help with Accounting, IR35, Tax, Umbrella, Mortgage OR Insurance services; just drop us an email on OR You don't want to pay £2500 and a fine, do you? :) I bet, NO!
