I may be late to the game here to post this, but does anyone know when agents were unable to register clients for taxes?
A few months ago I was trying to set up a PAYE scheme through my agent log in, and took me through all of the questions and on the final page just said failed. I tried this several times over several days, in the end contacted online services only to be told the clients have to do it themselves!
I helped the client sign up....a very labourous process...asked so many questions inc passport details, info to match against credit agencys etc!
And I have been told the same applies for self assessment too, I am assuming all taxes now.
Does any one know when this changed?
And who else finds it utter madness that we cannot register our client for taxes? I find it a basic service as an accountant. At least you know the forms are filled in correctly. I just cannot see the logic in it.
