I have a potential new client who started self employment in 2019 and needs a tax return for a mortgage application. She asked me if I could produce a set of accounts and tax return and strike a balance between her not needing to pay much tax but looking profitable enough to be accepted mortgage. I explained that I can give advice on what she might be able to claim for etc but I have to produce an honest and accurate set of accounts. I didn't want to appear to be rude - do other people on here find that some clients think the accountant's role is to manipulate accounts to their financial advantage? How do you deal with that?

Is my client asking me to do something dodgy?!
