Good morning everyone!
I posted a thread back in February but there have been updates and I really would like to know what people think. Here is the original thread, sorry for the length of the OP
I did make a report to the firm's MLRO and didn't think about it again. I suspect that he took no action.
Today, I just happened across the file of the individual client on the (self employed consultant) Account Manager's desk and surprise surprise, he has completed the client's tax return for 2013/2014 to include a capital gains tax computation showing the latest option payment received. He has done it manually, sent it to her and told her to post it herself but the letter is on our firm's system, was on our letterheading, etc.
I'm really so cross about this - he is a qualified ACCA with over 40 years worth of experience and he knows full well he shouldn't be doing this. He has clearly bypassed my department this time around - probably as he knew I would not let any of my staff be involved in completing a tax return knowingly incorrectly.
So what do I do now? Another report to the principal of the firm? Probably pointless as the last one wasn't acted upon. Report direct to NCA?
Please help, this is so morally repugnant to me and it's going to worry me (and I don't want people getting away with tax evasion).
