I have come to submit a tax return for a client using a third party software and was unable to as they said I was not authorised. I logged in to my government gateway to find out that my self assessment and corporation tax had been removed. When contacting HMRC they stated that the agent maintainer department had suspended my account. I have been trading under the same name in the same place for over 30 years so am a loss as to why they have done this now. I have spoken to several departments at HMRC and none of them are able to contact agent maintainer. Has anyone experienced this and know how to resolve it? I have read that they will send a letter to all clients advising that we have ceased trading which is going to cause a huge disruption and inevitable loss of business. After this year I'm not sure how much more my business can take. Any advice urgently would be greatly appreciated.
