    Cannot get the official receipt

    Previously, I have paid for the maintenance work £380.  But, I cannot get the official receipt as she explains that it is because the price is reduced from £415 to £380.  I don't think it is reasonable.

    I have emailed her twice, but I get the same reply (from the agent).  What can I do?

    This has happened to me before

    if you have emailed them print the email and then create an invoice yourself

    and log the email and the invoice in your accounts

    I think that you would have covered yourself iand that’s your job done

    Is this email 'tax-deductible'??

    Three things...

    a) HMRC only require evidence that you paid (well, they'd like invoices etc..) so possibly email & bank/credit-card records of payment is OK.

    b) Cheaper for cash?  She;s fiddling her tax, I'd grass her up (google it..)

    c) Pay the £415 not £380 and require an invoice...


    Me, I'd do b) & c) ....

    For b), I think it is true.

    If a) works, why c).  As I don't want to pay more...

    Paying some money to get an invoice/receipt may be a wise approach: Particularly if you paid cash (rarely recommended).  But if you have good email/letter trail of evidence and bank records showing payment fine, just grass her up to HMRC {& maybe VaT..)  (and the DWP if feeling keen: MOST adults in UK are on benefits...)

    How did you pay her - cash, bank transfer etc etc etc??

    I am sure you have your point when you want to pay a little bit more.  In my case, the agent simply deduce the cost from the rental deposit.

    Personally, I prefer to have a clear book keeping so that I know how much I have spent and earned.

    On the other hand, I try to follow the links which you have provided.  It is serious issue!  What will be the consequence(s) if I file my case?  (I am totally new in this area.)

    ??? In my case, the agent simply deduce the cost from the rental deposit.????


    I know I'm over 70 now and not so sharp but how can anyone work out the likely cost of any maintenance work from a deposit, please???  I'm eager to learn...
