Rather interesting phonecall with a client. He says on the grapevine there is an accountant giving advice how to qualfy for a lower flat rate percentage by asking his clients to 'make up' cost of sales. The accountant is then backdating vat registration for his clients on a low FRS, thus client making money. Sadly lots of clients are discussing this and moving towards this accountant. Through another conversation with an old client (whom we still have discussions) his accountant is also offering this new service! What annoys me is my clients are now asking why I am not offering this as surely it would be in their best interest. Shocking after 30 years in the industry this is what it's coming to. I cant report the accountant because he has been removed from his governing body (not sure whether voluntary or pushed but his clients dont seem to care anyway) Has anyone else experienced these problems?
