    Child Benefit Penalty Fines

    Child Benefit Penalty Fines 15th Apr 19 at 5:28 PM
    Hi All

    About 2 years ago I was contacted by HMRC and told that I needed to repay Child Benefit that I had been receiving as I was now earning over the threshold - long storey and they agreed that there was some mitigating circumstances however they still had to impose fines (although reduced from 10% to 5%)

    Last year I read that they (HMRC) had reviewed their position on this and were reviewing and would refund those who had been fined.

    Has anyone heard from HMRC yet about this? I can't find anything about contacting them and all they appear to have said is that there is no need to contact them??

    All help gratefully received

    Regards

    Steve
