Hi thank you for your message, I appreciate this is important to you so I will endeavour to give you a quick but clear answer. Please note this is not a chat service so responses may not be instantaneous. This is not a legal obligation as such, there are schemes such as the construction industry scheme which require this but if they are not a member they do not have to do so. Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.

there called Rightio (nationwide) they do plumbing drainage locksmiths & pest controll thereve been around for about 20 years . . (would the inland revenue know ? as id like to send them a responce so they give me my entitled work receipts ?

They might have included this information in their accounts if they have done this yet but HMRC would not be able to disclose that information with you. You can suggest however, that if they do not supply the receipts you will have to report them to HMRC for failing to supply this information. Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions-I am happy to help!
