I have just found out, that last week, one of my clients has been struck-off by Companies House for failing to complete an Annual Return.
I wasnt instructed to deal with the company secretarial matters, haven't heard from the client for a few months, but am being paid to deal with the payroll which is being done each month. I've had no issues with unpaid fees and have been sending the payroll details to them each month.
Accounts and a tax return are due, the company has been trading but I assume all of this is irrelevant now that the company has been struck-off.
I've never actually had this happen seems totally ridiculous that HMRC are now going to miss out on considerable amounts of tax which would have been due.
I assume I will have to formally cease acting for the company as it no longer exists?
