Would strongly advise you get some experience in practice, very few tax returns are completely straightforward, there’s always something you need to ask or check and unless you have some experience you won’t know the right questions to ask. Why not MAAT? The AAT also run sessions on working for yourself which you might find useful. Other tax qualifications to go for: ATT would be a good fit.

The gross wages and e’er NICs/pension costs will have gone in as a debit to a code in the 7000’s, the net wages and PAYE/NIC/pension liabilities will have gone as credits to codes in the 2000’s. When the payments go out of the bank the entries will debit the liabilities.

Nope, I can't see my clients' payments and allocations, it's very frustrating.

It happened to all my clients last month, the DDs didn’t go until a full week late and they are now getting letters....

I just use TaxCalc for accounts and tax returns, can highly recommend those aspects. Seamless links between the two, and pain-free filing to Cos Hse and HMRC. Good links too with Xero, QB etc, so you can bring in the data for the year. And on the odd occasion I have had to contact them with a problem they have got straight back to me.

Sadly although your intentions are kind, you cannot help this person get well again. Do you have his permission to talk to his wife? His family are the ones who need to step up and help. You, meanwhile, need to recognise the limitations of your professional relationship and go through the process of disengagement in a non-threatening way. Talk to your professional body, they will be able to advise you.

Thanks for the update, clients paid yesterday via BACS, the HMRC DDs have not gone as of today (13th) but we’ll keep a watchful eye on the accounts.

I have had the same issue for a couple of clients this week, first quarter under MTD, we have the emails confirming the DD has been transferred but no money taken. I too phoned HMRC yesterday, was told to check again today and if no money taken to tell clients to pay it by BACS - the opposite of what you have been told! Which is what I have done. Am now very confused.

Let everything go to voicemail. Have a set time when you reply to your messages, maybe twice a day. Tell folks (in your voicemail message) that this is what you will be doing. Massive timesaver.
