    IR & SLC (Wales) are watching you! 18th Mar 17 at 9:56 PM
    DD graduated last summer and started work in August. A week after first payday letter from SLC to say IR had informed them she was working and setting out earning/repayment thresholds.

    Last payday October as she took some time out to go abroad travelling. She'd barely left British soil and letter from SLC asking how she was supporting herself and to return form with details or else!!!!

    She's now returned from travelling and was first paid 2 weeks ago (she's agency so paid weekly). Today letter from SLC saying we know you are working again and setting out thresholds again.

    I have to say I'm impressed that 2 Govt.bodies are so on the ball communicating with each other.

    If you're going to get on your high horse it's best to be correct in what you are talking about, Inland Revenue hasn't existed in the UK since 2005 when it merged with HM Customs and Excise to form HMRC.

    PS I think you have clearly evidenced that most people understand what Govt. body I meant by Inland Revenue even if they are not as old as me!

    This.



    So true. I had them pestering me a couple of years ago when I was unemployed and threatening to make me start paying the student loan back.

    I'd decided not to claim benefits because the man in the job centre made me feel like something on the bottom of his shoe. I embraced frugality and eked out savings instead but kept my pride and didn't have to jump through anybody's flaming hoops.
