    Address for Taxreturngateway for complaints is

    James Wyatt, Director, Who4, Unit 3 North Hylton House, North Hylton Road, Sunderland SR5 3AD.



    Some brief notes;

    How do these sites get around Distance Selling Regulations on cancellation ?

    Taxreturngateway terms include


    11.5 By making an order with us and completing the Application form you are deemed to be granting authority for us to begin providing our Service immediately. This means that you will not have the right to cancel your contract with us once you have made your order.
    This is covered by regulation 13 of the The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling Regulations 2000)

    13.—(1) Unless the parties have agreed otherwise, the consumer will not have the right to cancel the contract by giving notice of cancellation pursuant to regulation 10 in respect of contracts—

    (a)for the supply of services if the supplier has complied with regulation 8(3) and performance of the contract has begun with the consumer’s agreement before the end of the cancellation period applicable under regulation 12;
    There is no cooling off period.

    They do not have to supply written contract/agreement under regulation 8 because of regulation 9
    9. (1) Regulation 8 shall not apply to a contract for the supply of services which are performed through the use of a means of distance communication, where those services are supplied on only one occasion and are invoiced by the operator of the means of distance communication.


    The service says ‘’ You will receive your accurate tax bill within 72 hours of submission.’’

    Taxreturngateway terms

    13.6 In the event that Services are provided that do not conform with your order you should contact us within 10 days to inform us of any mistake. W4L will ensure that any necessary corrections to the Services provided are made within 7 working days.


    Some of their terms are contradictory;

    12.15 Our estimation process is provided without warranty as to its accuracy or fitness for any particular purpose. It is provided as an indicative tool and no reliance should be placed upon it. You will receive your accurate tax bill within 72 hours of submission.
    13. Provision of Services

    13.1 Provision of Services shall commence when full payment has been received or as otherwise detailed in the Terms & Conditions pertaining directly to those Services.

    13.2 No contract shall be formed until the customer has received written confirmation either by email or SMS to that effect.

    13.3 Confirmation shall be considered to be provided when W4L delivers the email or SMS and no liability shall exist for the provision of incorrect information by the customer.

      I think they should be stopped from using the name 'Gateway' full stop.
      The Government Gateway Account takes you to the actual HMRC front page and that is where you log in, if when you google any of the other links and it does not take you to their official page back off. SIMPLES

          The recording is on the Money Box site http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03tqxb1

          I like your pin shot
          I keep it with your letter
          Done up in blueprint blue
          It sure looks good on you
          And when you smile for the camera
          I know I'll love you better

          Then the shutter falls
          You see it all in 3-D
          It's your favorite foreign movie

            ASA action We’ve taken action against a number of companies that have fallen foul of the rules. Here are details of copycat companies we have ruled against:

            landregistryonline.net (November 2013) - we upheld a complaint from a member of the public that claims on this website misleadingly implied they were the official home for title documents & property searches

            Jars Services Ltd t/a www.drivinglicense.org.uk (November 2013) – we upheld a complaint from South Lanarkshire Trading Standards that claims on this website were misleading as they implied they were affiliated with the DVLA

            TAD Services t/a UK-Passport.net (4 September 2013) – we upheld 14 complaints because this company implied that they were affiliated with the HM Passport Office.



            Other companies subject to ASA rulings:
             IQ Channels Ltd t/a www.estavisas.org.uk (December 2013)  IQ Channel Ltd t/a www.passport-uk.co.uk (December 2013)  UK Official Services (23 November 2011)  Mainland Data Services t/a www.britishpassport.org.uk (November 2013)  Trademark Office Ltd t/a Patent & Trademark Office (October 2013)  Mohammed Saghir Anwar t/a UK Official Deed Poll Service / Official Deeds (October 2013)  book-my-theory-test-online.org.uk (September 2013)  Trademark Renewal Service Ltd (5 June 2013)  European Health Insurance Card t/a EHIC (June 2013)  Book Your Practical Test Online Ltd (January 2013)  Esta Visa Ltd t/a www.nhs-services.org.uk/EHIC (September 2012)  Multimedia Computing Ltd t/a UK Deed Poll Service (June 2011)  Visas2 Ltd t/a ESTA-online.co.uk (December 2009)

              I was going to say when I have to do a congestion charge for the company I work for there are several sites that come up before the correct one, it is extremely easy to hit the first one and give all your card information and I should think that they take you money and you have not paid the congestion charge. It is really about time these sites are stopped from purporting to be who they are not.

                Case in point... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/...on-charge.html

                I just googled congestion charge and the top result after the obvious adverts is the tfl.gov.uk site. same with self assessment tax return.

                Actually looking at the first advert, they have stuck the gov-uk in it, probably following all the warnings to only use gov.uk sites. Sneaky beggars.

                      The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000.
                      Right to cancel
                      10. —(1) Subject to regulation 13, if within the cancellation period set out in regulations 11 and 12, the consumer gives a notice of cancellation to the supplier, or any other person previously notified by the supplier to the consumer as a person to whom notice of cancellation may be given, the notice of cancellation shall operate to cancel the contract.
                      (2) Except as otherwise provided by these Regulations, the effect of a notice of cancellation is that the contract shall be treated as if it had not been made.
                      (3) For the purposes of these Regulations, a notice of cancellation is a notice in writing or in another durable medium available and accessible to the supplier (or to the other person to whom it is given) which, however expressed, indicates the intention of the consumer to cancel the contract.
                      (4) A notice of cancellation given under this regulation by a consumer to a supplier or other person is to be treated as having been properly given if the consumer—
                      (a)leaves it at the address last known to the consumer and addressed to the supplier or other person by name (in which case it is to be taken to have been given on the day on which it was left);
                      (b)sends it by post to the address last known to the consumer and addressed to the supplier or other person by name (in which case, it is to be taken to have been given on the day on which it was posted);
                      (c)sends it by facsimile to the business facsimile number last known to the consumer (in which case it is to be taken to have been given on the day on which it is sent); or
                      (d)sends it by electronic mail, to the business electronic mail address last known to the consumer (in which case it is to be taken to have been given on the day on which it is sent).
                      (5) Where a consumer gives a notice in accordance with paragraph (4)(a) or (b) to a supplier who is a body corporate or a partnership, the notice is to be treated as having been properly given if—
                      (a)in the case of a body corporate, it is left at the address of, or sent to, the secretary or clerk of that body; or
                      (b)in the case of a partnership, it is left with or sent to a partner or a person having control or management of the partnership business.
                      Exceptions to the right to cancel
                      13.—(1) Unless the parties have agreed otherwise, the consumer will not have the right to cancel the contract by giving notice of cancellation pursuant to regulation 10 in respect of contracts—
                      (a)for the supply of services if the supplier has complied with regulation 8(3) and performance of the contract has begun with the consumer’s agreement before the end of the cancellation period applicable under regulation 12;

                      (i)during the performance of the contract, in the case of services; and
                      (ii)at the latest at the time of delivery where goods not for delivery to third parties are concerned.
                      (2) The information required to be provided by paragraph (1) is—
                      (a)the information set out in paragraphs (i) to (vi) of Regulation 7(1)(a);

                      (i)where a term of the contract requires (or the supplier intends that it will require) that the consumer shall return the goods to the supplier in the event of cancellation, notification of that requirement; and
                      (ii)information as to whether the consumer or the supplier would be responsible under these Regulations for the cost of returning any goods to the supplier, or the cost of his recovering them, if the consumer cancels the contract under regulation 10;
                      (c)the geographical address of the place of business of the supplier to which the consumer may address any complaints;
                      (d)information about any after-sales services and guarantees; and

                      (3) Subject to regulation 9, prior to the conclusion of a contract for the supply of services, the supplier shall inform the consumer in writing or in another durable medium which is available and accessible to the consumer that, unless the parties agree otherwise, he will not be able to cancel the contract under regulation 10 once the performance of the services has begun with his agreement.

                            Update on Who4 - Tax Return Gateway ( they were cleared )

                            Four businessman have been cleared of all charges in relation to their operation of a self-assessment tax returns website. Stephen Oliver, Jamie Wyatt, Michael Hughes, and Richard Hough were found not guilty of all seven charges of fraud they faced in relation to the Sunderland-based taxreturngateway website.

                            A jury at Teesside Crown Court heard seven weeks of evidence in which prosecutors claimed the site was deliberately designed to deceive users into believing they were dealing directly with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC). Hundreds of users complained to Trading Standards departments across the country claiming they were misled into believing fees paid to the site would be deducted from their tax bill. "It is nonsense to suggest we set out to deceive anyone," said Mr Oliver. "We knew we had to be very clear to distinguish ourselves from the HMRC website. "It is something we thought long and hard about. "We thought the best way to do that was by the use of disclaimers and a comparison table. "In the table we compared our service to the service offered by HMRC. "By doing that, it must have been obvious to users we were not HMRC." Mr Oliver said for the first few weeks of taxreturngateway's operation the table appeared 'below the fold' on the site's homepage, meaning users on most devices would have to scroll down to see it. "To make the box even clearer we moved the table to the top corner of the page," said Mr Oliver. "It was a fledgling business, and we were making improvements in the site in response to customer feedback. "What we called the 'black box', the panel containing our contact details, appeared on every page apart from the tax forms where it could not. "The box made it clear we were a company, not HMRC. "There were also disclaimers on the site to the effect."

                            The jury heard evidence taxreturngateway turned over £5m in five months. The company had more than 20 staff, and paid all its bills including VAT, wages, and online advertising costs. "It was a legitimate business," said Mr Oliver.

                              Legitimate business it may well have been, but only after hoodwinking hundreds of consumers.
