Client bought an existing company on 1st January 2020. New PAYE scheme was registered. But the previous accountant did not send any RTI under new PAYE scheme.
Employees have been demanding furlough from new employer as they assumed that the previous accountant will have sent the data to HMRC which he didn`t.
Old PAYE scheme has ceased following company takeover.
I checked with HMRC but as no employee was showing on 19th March under new PAYE, they are unable to action anything.
Any pointers to resolve this?
