What Is Guardian’s Allowance?

Guardian's Allowance NumberWhen a child loses both of their parents, it can have devastating effects. Not only do they lose their parental figures, but the struggle to find a loving home that can raise them in a healthy environment can be daunting. Who hasn’t heard horror stories of foster home nightmares? If you are in a position that you want to take in children as their guardian. There is a financial safeguard that the government gives to make the transition and new living arrangements easier. An allowance is provided, that is tax-free and can help with new expenses and daily living costs.

If you find yourself in a situation where you have taken in children. The British Government offers £66 monthly, in addition to the child care benefits you may also be eligible to receive. There is no income requirements to qualify and no penalty for being a high earner.

Can I Get Maternity Allowance

Maternity Allowance Number

The government offers expectant women an allowance. This is for self-employed women or those whose earnings do not allow them to claim the statutory benefit. Maternity benefit is paid out for thirty-nine (39) weeks. And can be paid every two weeks or, every four weeks in arrears. This period is usually referred to as the maternity allowance period. This service is backed up by a Maternity Allowance helpline number for contact purposes.


For a person to confirm their eligibility for this allowance, here are a few guidelines:

  • If the individual is not entitled to statutory maternity pay, the proof of this is required in the form of a document known as SMP1. This document will list why the person is ineligible for statutory allowance.
  • If the individual has been employed for a minimum of twenty-six(26) of the sixty-six(66) weeks before the expected week of delivery, they are eligible for maternity allowance.
  • If the person earns a gross weekly wage of fewer than thirty pounds for the duration of the test period.
  • When the individual is considered to make a gross weekly wage of thirty pounds during the test period.
  • The expectant person has stopped work to deliver her baby.

To get this allowance, you do not have to be a UK citizen. People who have registered their businesses with HM Revenue and Customs are eligible. Failure to register or late registration could lead to you losing all or part of the allowance.

The Helpline Number is 0843 455 0033.

What is A Crisis Loan

Crisis Loan Number

Did you know that you can access a range of financial services that can bail you out in the case of a crisis? Well, here is the secret; you can call Crisis Loan Helpline 0843 455 7047 to get financial assistance to sort you out whenever you are faced with an overwhelming emergency. The financial assistance you get in case of an emergency is aptly named crisis loans.

A crisis loan is an interest-free financial facility offered by the government and is available to anyone above the age of 16 years. You do not need to be a beneficiary of other government benefits to access a crisis loan.

Crisis loans in the UK are now known as Budgeting loans and are paid from the social fund. They can be used to bridge the gap when moving to universal credit, as this is paid every 4 weeks.

A Few Facts About Crisis Loans

Now Under Local Councils

As of March 2013, crisis loans are no longer issued by the government. However local councils have been tasked with sustaining a functional emergency support system for the citizenry. The support, which is taken from Discretionary Funds, usually depends on the prevailing personal circumstances as well as the local council’s procedures and guidelines.

What You Can Do With a Crisis Loan

Most of us have seen tough times at least once in our lives. Therefore, if you are facing hard times, you can get a loan to help you sort out essentials such as;

  • Daily expenses such as food
  • Boarding or loading charges/hostel residential fees
  • Travel expenses for those who are stranded away from home

Crisis loans are also issued when disasters such as floods or fires which cause temporary financial crisis from the destruction of property and loss of livelihoods. The emergency loan can help you meet daily expenses such as food as well as help replace household items.

The crisis loan also comes in handy for those whose Community Care Grant is insufficient for other expenses such as advance rent to private landlords.

How Much Is Issued?

A crisis loan, unlike other government benefits, does not have limits on the amount that each should be given. However, there are a few factors that determine the amount you will be given. These factors are:

  • The prevailing severity of your circumstances
  • The amount you have saved up
  • Any unpaid Social Fund Loans

Crisis Loan Number 0843 455 7047.

How to Access Crisis Loans

The rules and regulations pertaining to crisis funding vary from one council to the next; there is no set general rule. While one council send the money directly to churches and food banks, others offer a card that is already loaded with the cash you need while others will give you cash on a short term basis.

There are a few conditions, however, that cut across the board. These conditions that qualify you for a crisis loan include:

  • Must be 16 years and above
  • A duly filled application form
  • You must not have taken the same loan more than 3 times in one year

The standard processing time for a crisis loan is 19 days. If by the 20th day you have not received any notification regarding the progress of your application, you can call the Crisis Loan Number 0843 455 0031. It is not advisable to call if the processing time has not lapsed, unless if you would like to cancel the application.

You must note that the crisis loan is only used to meet dire needs such as healthcare, food, and shelter. It cannot be used as court fees, education, debt repayments or work-related expenses. Before you take up the loan, make sure you understand all the terms and conditions stipulated in the agreement.

Crisis Loan Number 0843 455 7047.

How to Repay the Crisis Loan

Like all other financial facilities, it is important to note down the terms attached to the crisis loans. Once out qualify for the funds and they are released for your use, it is advisable to work out a repayment loan with the help of your Social Security Adviser. You can call the Crisis Loan Number 0843 455 0031 to get advice on how to go about it.

When working out a repayment plan, keep the following in mind.

  • The repayment amounts should be affordable to you
  • A repayment frequency should be achievable

Since the loan is an interest-free facility, you will pay exactly what you got (in smaller, affordable instalments). The best part about this facility is that it is not counted as a government benefit. This means that your chances on other government benefits are not affected.

What to Do If You Have a Query

If you are not pleased with the decision the local council makes concerning your crisis loan application, you should forward your complaints in writing to the Jobs and Benefits Office or the Social Security Office within 28 days of the decision. If you are still not okay with the decision the Social Fund Inspector makes, you are allowed to apply for a review. Alternatively, you can make good use of the Crisis Loan Number 0843 455 0031 to forward your complaints and queries.

There are three addresses to return your application form to depending on where you live, download a claim form.

When it comes to taxes, people always look for ways to reduce their tax liability. After all, nobody likes to pay more than what they owe! In fact, a lot of people also looks for ways in which they can boost their tax rebate or refund, which is why they contact the tax refund number. It is important to keep in mind that tax refunds are something that a majority of the people do not get. To understand whether or not you’re eligible for a refund, you need to understand the concept of a tax refund in the first place before you contact the tax refund number.

So, how can I get a rebate? This is defined as a refund of taxes that an individual receives when the tax liability is less than the tax amount paid by him/her. However, this isn’t the only scenario where you can get a tax rebate. You can also receive a rebate if taxes were deducted because you missed out on declaring your investments, the ones which help in tax savings. This is usually the case with working individuals because they forget to declare the investments made by them to the company they work for.

Tax Refund Number 0843 455 0092.

If you have an inkling that you qualify for tax refund then you can contact the tax refund number listed here. It is, however, required to have your income tax filed first to see whether or not you’re eligible for a rebate. In the case of salaried individuals, it is important to check with the employer for Form-16. If your tax return is missing a tax refund figure then there is no need to apply for the same because you will directly receive a cheque in the address stated or the amount will be credited directly to your bank account by the Income Tax Department.

In case you do not see a tax rebate figure in your returns then you will need to take the reins and claim a tax rebate yourself. The tax helpline number will be of great assistance here. Basically, if you have not submitted proper documents declaring your investments then you will need to do so by submitting a Revised Return of Income. You will be required to make a claim for such a rebate via Form 30.

Tax rebate can be quite a confusing and intimidating subject for people who are not well-versed with taxes. Thus, it is quite normal for people to be at a complete loss when it comes to rebates. Hence it is advisable to seek help from a tax expert in such cases in order to make things easier for you. Of course, there is also a tax refund number that you can contact in order to receive assistance.

What is Capital Gains Tax and how can the Helpline help you? It is a tax on the gain when you dispose of or sell something at a value higher than the actual price. It is the gain that is taxed, and it mostly happens with investments but also applies to personal property.

What Is The Tax Paid On?
The Tax is paid on the gain when you sell chargeable assets such as;
• business assets.
• personal possessions worth £6,000 excluding your car.
property apart from your main home.
• shares that are not in a PEP, NISA or ISA.

In the case of death and you inherit an asset; Inheritance Tax is usually paid by the estate of the person who has passed on. When you dispose of the asset in future, you only have to calculate if you need to pay Capital Gains Tax. To know more about what you don’t pay tax on, or when you don’t pay tax, contact The Helpline for a comprehensive guide.

CGT Helpline 0843 455 0092.

How to Work Out If You Need To Pay.
Calculating your total taxable gains:

Who Pays Stamp Duty

Stamp Duty Helpline

Working out how much duty you need to pay on the purchase of your new house can be daunting. But calling the helpline number will get you all the help you need. The government has recently revealed that it’s potentially in the process of reviewing the duty thresholds for homeowners and landlords. Which will come into effect in April 2016 to correspond with the new financial year?

If you need to clarify the new stamp duty requirements, then there is a dedicated contact number for you to call. Or take a look at the money advice service website for help and advice on buying a home.

In order to encourage first-time buyers wishing to get a foothold on the property ladder, the government is going to continue with the legislation installed in 2000 which states that a property purchase of £125,000 or less is exempt from duty completely. However, for property purchases of £125,001 or more. The duty can have an impact on the overall cost of buying a property. There are many property websites which have calculators that help you arrive at a figure you will have to pay the HMRC. Again, if you need more support or advice calculating the tax payable. Then you can phone the helpline number provided 0843 455 0047. To calculate stamp duty click here, or click here to make a payment to the HMRC.

The duty thresholds that are currently in existence are decided by several property price layers. Property stamp duty thresholds are as follows. A house which costs between £125,001 and £250,000 the current duty is 2% of the cost price. However, for houses regardless of whether they are freehold or leasehold costing between £250,001 and £925,000 the cost of the duty more than doubles.

Contact Number 0843 455 0047.

Instead of having to pay 2% duty it suddenly increases to 5% of the cost price of the property. In addition, the percentage rate of duty continues to increase for properties which cost between £925,001 and £1.5 million pounds. For property buyers that purchase property between the £925,001 and £1.5million bracket, the percentage rate increases to 10% of the cost of the property.

The highest threshold rate relates to properties that cost £1.5 million and higher. Properties within this bracket have to pay a duty of 12% of the property cost price. Ultimately, to get an exact total do not hesitate calling the helpline number for advice.

About Corporation Tax

Corporation Tax Helpline

Corporation Tax. It’s complicated. There are many requirements specified by legislation, regulations and rulings. You can get help in two ways. Hiring an accountant or tax adviser, or by calling the HMRC Tax helpline in the UK on 0843 455 0045. If you are outside the UK the Tax helpline number is +44 843 455 0045.

But first, let’s understand a little more about Corporation Tax. In a nutshell, it is a tax on the profits of a business. The government uses the taxes collected to fund the provision of services by the state.

For the purposes of the tax business is:

  • a limited company.
  • any foreign company with branches or offices in the UK.
  • a club, co-operative or other unincorporated association like a sports club.

A taxable profit is any money a business makes after expenses. It can be from:

  • trading profits.
  • investments.
  • chargeable gain from selling or disposing of any assets.

For UK based companies all profits are liable for the tax, both local and overseas. But foreign companies only pay the tax on the profits earned in the UK.

Tax Phone Number 0843 455 0045.

It’s the responsibility of a business to meet its tax obligations. To do this requires the business:

  • registers with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
  • maintains accounting records.
  • prepares a Company Tax Return.
  • pays the Corporation Tax or reports that none is payable.
  • submits its Company Tax Return on time.

Payment and filing of the Company Tax Return and supporting documents are all online here.

Missing a deadline is expensive. If a business misses a payment on the due date, interest is payable from the day after. And charged on a daily basis read more.

The deadline for the tax depends on the taxable profit payable as follows:

  • Up to £1.5 million. Due 9 months and 1 day. After the end of the accounting period.
  • More than £1.5 million. Payable by instalments. Based on the length of the accounting period.

The Corporation Tax rate for company profits changes over time. The rate(s) used are those applicable to a company’s accounting period. From 1 April 2015, the rate is 20%. But rates and their basis were different before this date. And can be different for ‘ring fence profits” for UK oil-related profits. Deductions or tax credits are also available.

So it’s complicated. Ringing the HMRC Tax Contact Number can help sort it out. Just remember to have your 10-digit Unique Tax Reference handy when you call.
