He was eligible at HMRC's cut-off date, but he would need to submit a false answer on his application to get any money (where they ask if he is still self-employed), that's the issue here.

We had a similar situation a while back. Turned out the guy had entered into an IVA some time prior, and whilst his home address tallied with the HMRC records for the ID check when he phoned, all correspondence went to the IVA administrator's address.

I thought dynamic coding was introduced to solve this sort of problem.

Presumably you're sure the employee has no other employments or pension income etc?

Worst case I've got is a chap with a pension plus a fluctuating salary which, when annualised, takes him into HR tax some months but not others, so pretty much every month there's a new coding. Spent a lot of time last year sorting this out. Delighted to discover, on preparing his Tax Return, that employer had ignored and used 1150L throughout! Client rather less pleased with outcome....

Surely if it's inaccessible by you it is also inaccessible by anyone who may access your systems, so it is as good as deleted after the grace period anyway? Personally I wouldn't have given this a second thought.

The "first new accountants" may have done all the work on the accounts and presented their fee, which your ex-client baulked at, and are now being side-stepped. Do you know otherwise, with certainty?

We're moving house, but buying before we sell, with short-term finance to cover. Of the three quotes from solicitors, only one got the stamp duty correct (we pay the extra 3% and reclaim once we've sold our current home). The purchase has now moved on, and we were sent the SDLT1 form to sign. There is land with the purchase, there are 4 separate titles to transfer, but only the one with the house was in the form, and no sign of the necessary SDLT3 forms. I am now a SDLT expert - well at least I know more than the firm who is supposedly advising me!

Put the address in Rightmove, which gives transaction amounts and dates for all properties in the area. At least you should get the selling price for the 2005 sale which is a start!

No idea why Santander wouldn't offer to accountants, as it's basically just a "no right of offset/aggregation" clause and debiting bank charges to the office account, so the nature of the account holder's business is surely irrelevant? If correct you'll have to move bank imho, as I doubt another bank would offer this as a stand-alone service.
