Re: ADrunkenMarcus' 'Dividend Growth Portfolio'.

CAKE ... It may just be a case of writing them down 100% in March instead of February. Another reason to "rebalance" now or in Feb: Pursuant to AIM Rule 1, if a replacement Nominated Adviser is not appointed within one month, the admission of the Company's securities will be cancelled on ...

Re: How low will you go?

I was initally surprised at the poll's result - the lowness was lower than I would have expected from a group of HYPers I wasn't surprised. Many like voting in polls, come what may, and many who spot them aren't genuine HYPpies (in so far as this board is concerned that is). Others claim not even t...

Re: Messy investments - can I pay someone to give them a spring clean?

Returning to this paragraph: On the other, a portfolio of shares and funds I inherited 20 years ago. Lots of small holdings with an income bias. I do basically nothing with it other than cash dividends (when I make it to the bank) and include it in the tax return each year. Are you saying all or mos...

Re: Probate and undiscovered tax liabilities

oh I've just realised prior to 2016/17, the tax would have been deducted automatically wouldn't it? so the previous years for that, it wouldn't have needed to go on a tax return anyway, is that right? Can you be a bit more precise on the type of "bond", as that would indicate whether or n...

Re: How to persuade leavers to change their minds

Perhaps it all goes back to the vote of no-confidence in Alf Ramsay/Harold Wilson for taking Charlton off in the match against West Germany which allowed a Europhile into 10 Downing street.

Re: Fines for late returns already sent out by HMRC

Just heard on the news that several people have received fines from HMRC for late submission for the year 17-18 though it is not yet Jan.31 and in at least one case where a return has in fact been submitted. HMRC deny sending out fine notices and demands. Is this an almighty blunder or a scamming a...
