  1. All it says is lorry hire - it doesn't mention gravel/stones etc at all. The lady did it for a reason, she thought that was what was needed for vat purposes?! is there any particular name the "stones" would be best being noted as, I am going to get her to redo the invoice.
  2. I have no idea why I thought it was 6 months, you have no idea how I felt when I sat down to finish it this evening and realised that we had passed the 3 month deadline?! I think it all depends on who opens the paperwork on the day now.
  3. We had gravel/stones supplied for drainage, surfacing etc. The invoice has noted "lorry hire" which I don't think is accepted. Can the invoice just be redone as gravel?
  4. Would that be acceptable? I actually do have a few outstanding invoices that I was going to forget about but I am sure the accounts lady could send them through with a letter if I contacted her again. Although I have rang the helpline pretending to inquire where the claim was at and they logged the call with my postcode?
  5. Folks Haven't been on in a while but I just realised we missed our 3 month vat reclaim deadline. I thought it was 6 months from the building cert. I rang this evening to enquire where the claim was at, as I pretended I hadn't got an acknowledgement or payment and I had sent it in November. They had very little details but basically said it was crazy, 6 week turnaround and no acknowledgements. I have another number to call next week, where I shall perhaps offer to resend the photocopies I made. Is this the best option? I have seen others declined for missing the deadline. ETA - I am about 6 weeks past the deadline Or is it best to be honest? Just checked and seen the following on HMRC website: The claimant must explain in writing why a claim is being submitted late. If no satisfactory explanation is received, the claim must be refused. Examples of reasonable excuse may include: compassionate reasons - Drs letter for depression? negligence of a professional adviser circumstances outside the claimant’s control, such as difficulty in obtaining invoices or completion certificates.

    Workings of a multifuel stove

    No, it's really really noisy but doesn't have the corresponding blazing flame. As soon as I turn it down we are back to a black flame.

    Workings of a multifuel stove

    The Stanley engineer tried one in both the external air pipe and the stove and no issues with either.

    Workings of a multifuel stove

    The delivery driver was supposed to let them know but didn't, I just happened to call in and ask about it and they said they didn't know anything about it. Replacement glass given straight away. I suppose my concern is that I can't be sure if it's a stove issue or an installation/chimney issue, though as mentioned, it was commissioned and everything was stated to be fine.
  10. Yeah ours was Creagh in toome. Do you want me to see if I can pull out our prices for comparison ?
  11. We got a Stanley boiler stove before Xmas. The first issue was broken glass on the door as it came out of the delivery van. When it was installed we realised the thermostat rod to control the primary air supply was broken. The latest thing is that there is no burn from the stove unless the door is open. We have had it checked independently and the direct air supply is good, there is a good draw on the chimney so was looking like the stove. A Stanley engineer looked at it last night. He adjusted the damper for the primary air supply. So now instead of rotating once from 0 to 4 it now rotates in 2 full circles, opening the damper more. The fire now stays lit without the door open but the noise of wind through it is horrendous. I also don't think the fire is still burning as hot as it's potential. The engineer said there generally wasn't anything that could be wrong with the stove. Any thoughts, consumer law allows us to request a replacement given we have had it for less than 6 months and previous attempts to repair have not worked.
