I wondered if you were still seeking assistance with this matter?
Thank you I appreciate you will not want to waste money. This service is picked up on emails by the experts so there can be delays in response deepening on the availability of the experts. However, I am happy to help with this. What date did your ex director step down from the board, and also what tax returns is he looking for and did they say why?
I am afraid his account is correct that if he was a director at the time then he would be entitled to see that tax returns. A reason just for example is that if he is under tax investigation (personally or through a new business) then he will have to show what tax etc. has went through the company even if it was none. However, to put your mind at ease, he will not be able to offset any tax on old accounts, that have now been filed i.e. 2018/19. However, if for any reason he is attempting to do anything untoward then he would be in breach of fiduciary duty and you could take action against him accordingly if this is the case. However, I don't really see any issue in him having old tax returns but you may want to clarify why he wants them to help put your mind at ease.
I hope this information has helped. You can find a local solicitor who deals with this on the law society webpage which is;
I would be obliged if you could Click the 5 stars at the top of the webpage (this will not cost any extra). This will tell the website that I have responded to your question, you can, of course, continue to ask any follow up questions free of charge. I won’t be paid for my time from the website if there is no rating left for me.
Well in that case you want to cover yourself by ensuring you have copies etc so that he cannot do anything, if you have serious concerns then you can wait until there is an official application for the records, if they obtain this via court order then you can express your concerns in releasing the tax records.
I hope this information has helped.
You are very welcome, I wish you all the best and hope you are safe in the difficult times.
