Watched this threat with interest having bought a practice last year.
AM used to be fairly easy and worked as described. Unfortunately since GDPR this is no longer available.
HMRC are insisting on new authorisations for each client.

You should have no problem selling at this size.
I’ve done several deals through Kevin Smith @ Vivian Sram and always been very good.

Had 3 PITAs try this over 25 years.
First one was very upsetting, by now I know the routine.
Get EVERYTHING together (emails partially). Read them. Narrate everything, reference it all up and pass to the panel lawyers.
Chase the lawyers weekly.
Read their draft response very carefully and adjust as required.
Never heard anything after that.
(And in the meantime OP think practically, how can you possibly be responsible for the actual tax? They’d have had to pay that themselves, you can only be responsible for penalties and interest on tax)

Refuse to use agencies.
Been on both sides (employee and employer) and they have always been useless.
Have filled the last 6 jobs at my firm through Indeed.
Before that used Recruitment Genius for about 5 years.

This is my go to, followed by: “we have a standardised 47 page application form for support. Next years applications close in 24 hours, would you like me to send you the form to complete so you can send it back with the supporting evidence by 4pm tomorrow?” (And yes, I do have a 47 page application form available I found on google I can send if anyone says yes... but they never have)

Years ago my wife (who’s a nurse) said “why don’t you print everything double sided?”
Blindingly obvious, but I’d never thought of it.
Across the whole office it saved £7k a year.
(We now just pdf so saved the other £7k)
