I have a client who will be disengaged shortly. We have had a long disagreement about fees and I have tried to be reasonable with them reducing the bill substantially as I just want them to jog on. However they want me to submit the tax return before they pay me, I don't trust them, with reasonalbe cause and I think they will not pay my fees.
I told them that we only submit tax returns after we have been paid. I don't think based on previous correspondence they will agree but I would rather just tell them that the work isn't complete until the fee is paid and just delete the accounts and tax return and sent their books back.
I want to receive some fee for this work but it would really annoy me if I submitted and received nothing.
