If a Ltd Company makes a disclosure to HMRC of tax due, due to undeclared income in previous years, and then can't afford to pay it, and applies for striking off (DS01, writes to HMRC advising them), can HMRC come after the director personally for the tax? Obviously, had the accounts been done correctly, and the tax not paid at the time, there would be an overdrawn DLA, but I'm specifically asking about whether HMRC can come after him personally in the event of a disclosure? It's been a while since I've done one.
I've spoken to my professional body, am aware of ethical issues, aware of MLR, and aware of when I need to decline to act, I'm just trying to pre-empt a question I am likely to be asked, which is basically, could he lose his house? I am, of course, trying to steer him into doing the right thing.
Oh for a straight forward set of accounts!
