We will undertake to process all information provided and verified by you, your spouse or civil partner in order to allocate any unused Marriage Allowance from one party to another. We will not undertake an audit or obtain third party verification of any information provided to us. It is your responsibility and that of your spouse or civil partner to ensure that all information and declarations provided to Ensign advisory LTD are true, accurate and correct. You must remember that HMRC will hold you wholly responsible and liable for any incorrect information provided. At Ensign advisory LTD we are proud of our reputation with HMRC and other parties. In order to maintain our reputation, we reserve the right to stop acting for you at any time if, in our opinion, continuing to act for you may jeopardise this reputation. If we decided to cease acting, we will not charge a fee for any services undertaken.

Obligations of you

It is your obligation and that of your spouse or civil partner to disclose to Ensign advisory LTD all of your earnings, income or gains for each of the tax years that a Marriage Allowance transfer is being applied for together with any debts owing to HMRC. Ensign advisory LTD cannot know what any earnings, income or gains have been and will not be held liable for any incorrect information provided. You, your spouse or civil partner agree to co-operate fully with Ensign advisory LTD at all times and provide any and all information that we reasonably require.

You, your spouse or civil partner will be responsible for the repayment of any tax refund received from HMRC where it is found that the information provided in order to secure a repayment is found by HMRC to be incorrect. In this case, Ensign advisory LTD will still be entitled to a fee for the services that it has provided.

Tax Rebate and Fees

By signing the Declaration to Act and our Letter of Assignment, in favour of Ensign advisory LTD, you unconditionally and irrevocably instruct HMRC to release, assign and repay to Ensign advisory LTD any tax rebate arising.

Where any tax rebate is sent directly to you by HMRC without the explicit approval or authority of Ensign advisory LTD, you agree to pay to us our agreed fee within 7 days. We reserve the right to undertake all legal means for recovery of our fee where you fail to make payment to us within 7 days of receipt of the rebate.

We never charge an upfront fee and will only be entitled to a fee if a income tax payment is released.

You will receive 100% of the increase to your household net income going forwards once the marriage allowance tax break is in place. This is approximately £250 per year. This is done at no cost.

Our fee of 35% + Vat (42% including VAT) plus £100 (including VAT) of the total HMRC repayment is payable if a payment released. Where no payment is released you do not have to pay us anything.

You agree and acknowledge that our fee, including VAT, will be retained from the rebate that we receive from HMRC and the difference will be repaid to you by cheque. The cheque will be made payable to the person who has generated the rebate and posted to the address entered when completing the application process.

If after 6 months the cheque remains uncashed or your Anti money laundering check is still outstanding we will cancel the cheque and be entitled to retain all of the monies received from HMRC and dispose of as we see fit.

Should you require a further cheque to be issued we will be entitled to charge a fee of £15 plus VAT.

If any of the tax rebate obtained is used by HMRC to meet any other tax liability that you may have, our fee will be based on the amount of the tax rebate generated not the amount actually repaid and received by us.

If you have applied for the Marriage Allowance transfer (either directly or via another business) and HMRC issue a rebate to us as a result of the claim we have made on your behalf, we will still be entitled to charge a fee for the work that we have undertaken. The fee will be 35 percent of any rebate obtained plus VAT at the prevailing rate.

For whatever reason a refund is created by HMRC whilst our Deed of Assignment is in place for both customers (transferor and recipient) the full fee of 35% plus vat and £100 (including vat) will be payable per refund.

Once we have received payment from HMRC we will send a cheque out to you for the remaining balance after our fee has been deducted within 35 days.
