I've just taken on a new client. Limited company, 1 director and no employees.
The old accountant included £8,500 per year in the accounts for directors salary (above the LEL) but never opened a PAYE scheme and submitted nothing.
The salary was included on the self assesment tax return.
I've never come across this ever as it should be submitted under RTI.
My question is, will the director still have these years as qualifying years towards his state pension as there isn't a PAYE scheme?
I doubt it but I'm clutching at straws. If not is there anything I can do? It's been going on for years
