Last year my company entered administration as was subsequently sold off to pay creditors. I now rent the property back to this new company which provides a small income. Aproximately 1500 per month after paying the mortgage on the property.
The problem I have is the Inland revenue and my unpaid tax of 80K. I have good equity in my house and also the business premises collectively over 400K. How do I deal with the revenue and pay them off. Would they agree to say £1000 per month or will they come after my assets.

Hi there and welcome to the forum

If you want to avoid realising assets to pay your HMRC debt, you will need to try and enter into a "Time to Pay" agreement with them - which will involve you offering affordable instalments over a realistic timescale.

I would personally doubt that they would accept payments as low as £1,000 per month - these agreeements are usually only accepted if HMRC can see their debt will be paid off in under 12 months - but don't let that put you off as you could be successful.

Perhaps your accountant could help with the approach to HMRC.
