I am in the process of analysing accounts for a solicitor on behalf of one of their clients.
Found some really serious problems. Do I report? or as I was engaged by the solicitor to do the work does the solicitor do the report?
A lot more involved than I can write here obviously, just not sure who should do the reporting.
Can't reply as anonymous so have added this.... I believe my findings will be used in court and the accountant will be included.
The solicitor is definitely not "dodgy" but I believe the accountant is.
5th November 2018 - Just to update on this - court case is now over but the issues found were not raised in court so as to protect an innocent party (will update again with further details). Question I now have is - while the info was not reportable as per David Winch's reply below is this still the case? Do I/can I now report because the substantial fraud (£200k+ lost tax) was not brought up in court? The accountant was 100% involved/helped in this fraud.
