Letting a new accountant know of HMRC issues

A former client has appointed a new adviser - is it right to disclose HMRC dealings?

Didn't find your answer?

A former client has found a new accountant, who has in turn written to me earlier in the week asking for the usual hand-over information and so on.

The client had a lot of outstanding issues with HMRC, but was not the most responsive in dealing with them and as such they compounded during my time within the engagement.

Would you disclose that there are outstanding points with HMRC to the new adviser, or is it really not for you to say? Common sense tells me yes, but in a way that is not defamatory.
