You could always start your own thread so that I don’t receive an email to say some [***] has resurrected a thread from many years ago?

People assume calculators and spreadsheets are the trusted friends of accountants.
Well, they’re wrong.
Take some gaffer tape into the meetings. When you’ve listened to enough, simply stick some over their mouth (and around their legs if they are the type to run after you) and walk out.

As a first time buyer, it’s probably giving me another £60k to play about with in the market if 5% deposits return. Happy days.

Why do some accountants use corporate lawyers?
Maybe the client has a complex set up, perhaps going into business with friends that require complex shareholders agreements to be drawn up?
I’d rather point the client towards a solicitor, but if Bob Harper was around he’d tell you that this is a value added service that you can charge a premium for.
Simple incorporation with an hours meeting to discuss the basics, DLA’s and the distinction between the director / shareholder and the company ... £150+ VAT.
If they are looking for a £10 incorporation, it’s not worth my time. They’ll run the company like a as$h0l3 and cause me more work than I’ll ever get paid for.

You can’t be 4rsed responding to your accountant for months on end, and then have the audacity to say that your accountant is slow at responding? Jesus wept.
You need to realise that you’re the problem. Your return could have been submitted months ago had you bothered to get your act together.

I should hope you are giving away equity ... the software is the easy bit.
Unless the tax system is overhauled, what you are trying to achieve isn’t doable. What you’ll end up creating is tax software for accountant where there is already an extremely competitive market.
