VAT performance bond
I have a client who has had to close down his previous business due to cashflow issues from the loss of a major customer last year and also a change to payment terms from another customer. The business could trade profitably now, but the previous debts are not servicable (HMRC would not negotiate much with payment plans) and the client has exhausted their personal funds. The amount owing to HMRC was approximately £80K.
The client has set up a new business and purchased the trade and assets, transfered the employees etc from the liquidators and is starting again. A common scenario for many I'm sure. So following the VAT registration, the client has been asked to provide a bond of circa £40K. This is simply not affordable for the client.
Has anyone been in this situation and managed to reverse the decision via a letter of explanation and recent management accounts .
Thanks in advance.
