Default UK HRMC

So quick question- when I left UK in 2002, I had not been receiving my UK mail, so I apparently I owed 1000 pounds in UK taxes due to a company car benefit which I was not aware of at the time, and to be honest was not in a position to pay until now.

I am about to start contacting HMRC for the state pension voluntary 2 contributions for NI to top up my UK state pension- as its been 18 years will this still be on my record and will I have to pay % penalties etc?

I am just concerned about it as I have no idea if I do get asked to pay, what the figure would be. thanks

Ooops and ouch, penalties and interest may be due - hopefully they wouldn't prosecute for tax evasion. You might want to get some professional advice on this... I'm not sure when the cut off for them to come after you for it would be..

If it was due to the company you were working for not making PAYE deductions for the benefit, read this: (opens in new tab, no download)

looks like they should have been taxing you at source (i.e. PAYE tax code) unless you were using it for private use.

That is surprising as, when I applied for top up contributions I received a cheque a few months later for £878 which was, apparently, overpaid tax from 2005, the year after we moved but a works bonus was paid at tax year end. They hadn't known where to send it until I contacted them, but they must have reviewed the records going back to then.
