Thanks chrisholmes, I'll have a peek and see if that report is available on the Subway POS, although I will be needing daily totals, vat breakdown etc, but every little helps though.
I'm still waiting for my client to call the Subway POS support line and get advice from them.
When / if I find a solution, I'll pop back on here and let everyone know - I'm sure there must be other people in the same situation.
Thanks again for the advice, really appreciate anything at this stage

Now that sounds like an easier option, thanks for that.
Once I have access to the POS system, I'll see if that's possible.
You'd think that as Subway have so many franchises that they'd make it a little easier to export data ........
Thanks again - fingers crossed

Oh Buggerz - I kinda guessed that would be the case.
I thought maybe as there were so many franchises in a similar situation that there would be some solution that someone else had found ........
£15k ??? Wow !
Ummmm - can I 'borrow' it ? LOL
Getting someone to write a program isn't an option (unless we happen to get more Subway franchise clients)
So I'll try and see what, if anything can be exported first and then maybe try this API thingy .......
Sorry for being a bit dense but could you explain this API login please, is that something that a total ignoramus like myself could attempt ?
And what would I need for this ?
Thanks for your feedback - I had noticed that SO many people have viewed this question ..... and then avoided it. Hahaa

I've tried to call them, only to be told off for being impatient - after 2 months, I only found out after logging on to the clients Government Gateway account and seeing an open 'Final VAT Return' !!
And neither I nor my client have received any written confirmation at all.
Good Luck though

I've been using Quickbooks Desktop for both the Global Margin and the 2nd Hand Margin scheme.
When I first found the work around, I was a bit dubious, but it DOES actually work.

That's invaluable. Just tried it going back to 2011 and it works perfectly.

That's quite a complicated one ....... but - try the easy solutions first. Have you filed the previous quarters vat ? If you haven't this would be brought forward into the opening balance for this quarter.

Ok .... point taken. I'll forward the info on to the other two directors so that they can make an informed decision.
I don't expect my client to pursue any civil proceedings, and they definately don't want the directors family o suffer in any way.
I think that about wraps this one up. I have been notified that the amount 'stolen' may probably/hopefully be allowable for tax. HMRC may argue the toss, but in the majority of cases will accept if an explanation is given, so ..... fingers crossed.
Thanks again for all your help and advice, it's much appreciated.

Yes , the director wrote the names of suppliers on the cheque stubbs. We became suspicious at the companies year end when I had seen a statement from their main supplier, which didn't tally with their payments. In the proccess of asking the usual year end questions about closing creditors, one of the other directors realised that they should NOT have an overdue account with ANY of their suppliers of such a large amount (£36,000).
And yes, we got copies of all the cheques from the bank.

More theft .....
Thanks again for all your advice David.
We have triple checked that there were no other methods of theft and we're quite confident that the cheque writing was the only one. We have gone back as far as Oct 2010 and had the bank send us copies of the cheques just to be sure.
I didn't realise that the company could ask for compensation. Sounds good to me as the company has suffered. Apart from loss of reputation, they now have an incredibly large overdue account with their main supplier.
If the police can get access to his personal accounts, it would be reassuring to reconcile the payments that we know about and see if there are any other deposits. Although, some of the cheques written were to his mortgage company, his relatives, money lending companies etc, so many of the cheques didn't touch his personal bank account.
