Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi.If you look here, you will see there are numerous professional accountancy bodies of which the accountant you are referring to may be a member of. He may not be a member of any of them. Anybody can set up a business as an accountant or tax adviser in the UK without being a member of a professional body so there are rogue individuals in the profession I'm afraid.You could report the accountant to HMRC in the UK if you think he is committing fraud by submitting deliberately false tax returns by calling the number here. You can retain your anonymity as you will see if you click on the first link. Tax agents have to have an HMRC issued agent code in order to be able to submit tax returns electronically to the tax office and they have been know to switch off the ability for some accountants and tax agents to do that if they feel that they have good reason to do so.An alternative would be to contatc the police but HMRC and the professional bodies would be the best places to start.I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
He has gateway numbers and does all tax returns on line.here and in the uk.As far as i know he is not registered with c.p.a or f.a.q.I would be obliged if you could give me a telephone number so i can contact the correct authorities and give them my report.
Thank you for your information.Iwill contact the number you gave me.This person needs to be reported for fraud.thank you.
