I'm interested to learn how most of you deal with clients who are always too lazy to provide complete information for self assessment. They have provided mortgage statetments for half the year, bank statements with many of the months missing, and missing expenses etc.
I waste a lot of times, chasing for these information and explaining to them why it is important to include accurate and complete fiqures when submitting their tax return. It is their opinion that I should use whatever information they've provide, to get the return out of the way. I'm uncomfortable doing this because of possible comeback from HMRC.
How do you deal with such clients ? Am I being unreasonably too stricts with my requests or would you do the same
