Had a new client come to me in June. Her accounts should have been filed by 31.12.2014 with Co House.
Her books were with her accountant who had become seriously ill anyway long story short she didn't want to add to his
Problems so had just got her books back from him.
I filed the late accounts along with 31.03.2015 on 10th July.
However today we have recived a summons taking client to court for failure to file by due date.
The statement was done on 2nd July showing they had t been filed but papers only issued now after filing is up to date.
She has never filed late before in 8 years of trading so concerned why they are seeking to prosecute her, I know they were late
But I have seen clients with several years missing and all that happened was they paid the fine and that was it.
She is only 6 months late so unsure why they have taking this stance with her or are Co House now taking a much tougher
Stance to drum up extra cash from small businesses
As anyone else had this problem.
