I wondered if anyone has ever had experience of requesting information from an outgoing agent and receiving scant and nonsensical garbage?
I asked for a TB and supporting schedules, which the guy said he couldn't as his computer had crashed. Having downloaded a copy of the previous years accounts from Companies House, and pushing for answers, I've had some strange remarks regarding Fixed asset additions being shown in the P&L rather than Depreciation and the Fixed assets rec in the Notes section not showing b/f costs and depreciation separately. When I questioned that the accounts weren't to current accounting standard the guy said HMRC haven't queried them so they must be ok!
Should I attempt to do anything about this, as none of it makes any sense, or just pick up the reigns and get on with it for the new client?
