Client (Take-away Chip Shop) is due a vat inspection shortly, first one in ten years. Firstly HMRC officer and I have got off on the wrong foot because I have insisted on being present when he interviews my client and I have also taken him to task about contacting my client directly (twice now) illiciting snippets of information.Client's business is very much run above board but I am conscious that this doesn't necessarily mean too much. Can I request that HMRC officer provide a list of questions prior to the visit. If not or if not forthcoming any advice on the likely questions that will be asked would be most appreciated.
