I have taken on a new client who had been who had been ripped off by an unscrupolous Accountant. Client has already paid more than what was due to him & money is not the issue except for keeping the client indefinitely. But has had failed to file the PAYE returns. Never discuss the accounts & it would appear that the accounts are in total mess. Hence the reason for my client leaving him. The Accountant does not belong to any Professional organisation. HMRC is not interested. Is there any way, the client or I can force him to release Client's records?
There had been a number of discussions on the same topic. But, not being messed about by an unqualified & unprofessional people calling themselves Accountants.
