I have taken on what appears to be a nasty Enquiry Case, the subject of which is sufferring considerable stress. The baton has been handed on to me by another firm which appears to have spent two years "mucking about" with the case, regularly charging fees but making no meaningful progress at all!
The client's wife is becoming ill because of this case, and even if a "quick fix" is not going to be easily achieveable, I must at least try to aspire to that. My main issue is the exercise of trying to determine what the annual tutoring fees amount to.
The bank statements are messy because non tutoring cash has been paid in. So my opening question is : Can I reconstruct gross fee income by direct reference to any diaries, day books or whatever...
....which leads me to one BASIC point. I have always been led to believe that driving tutors (private tutors) never makew any serious money anyway? Matters like mileage details on MOT certificates etc may help, but can anybody offer any valuable tips on this kind of case?
