Director has taken out £40k from Ltd bank. There is no regularity or pattern, some times multiple times in a week. The Ltd is not paye registered and has no other employees. The only thing I could think of is put to DLA and declare as dividend but HMRC could challenge its a wage but on the same token there is no regularity either with the amounts taken or frequency to classify as a wage.
To complicate things the client now wants to change accountants (hence why I'm posting as anonymous) as their friend has an accountant who has no issues with the friend taking money in this way. I refuse to release the final accounts and have been paid. I don't want to cause an issue by refusing to release the final accounts but at the same time don't want to fudge anything that comes back to bite me due to the clients own actions.
