It was certainly wrong of you lie like that. Just tell the truth to your clients.

I've never known anyone bother looking at online reviews for small firms. As far as I am aware, there is not a single review of my practice anywhere, good or bad. It's just not part of the culture. So a one star review will not matter a damn.

Most practitioners have tried adverts. Most get zero response, and of the remainder, most get insufficient response to justify repeating. The only advert that ever worked for me was the Yellow Pages until about 2004.

Something going wrong in the post room happens all the time at HMRC. It is routine to receive letters generated weeks earlier, which must have been sitting around in batches in their post rooms.

No, but we do need to use apostrophes correctly.

Their accounting went to pot. Their FD is now saying 'How cannabiso stupid'?

If someone you don't know offers you a bet, you would be a fool to take it, as there is no way of holding them to it if they lose that is worth the time and effort. It likely that is the reason your offer has not been taken. It is certainly the only reason I don't take you up on it for a lot more than £5. Don't flatter yourself that you are making any real point by offering this bet.

Principle, not principal.

You don't need to sack tardy clients. You just need to deal with their affairs when you have the time. That may well mean that they miss the deadline, but so what? Just make sure that they are told of the latest time they can bring their records at which you will guarantee their return's submission on time. If they miss that deadline, just do it in February. You still get their fee, and there is no need to rush anything.

Such liability would result in nobody being willing to do audits. It is bad management, not bad auditing, that mostly causes company failure, so any auditors' liability should be proportionate.
